Euskadi

I landed on Euskadi on an open plaza, and right away noticed an old building and fountain. In this building (see picture below) someone is exhibiting photographs of a bull run (from Pamplona I think). Some of the pictures are enough to make me shudder. The building is not very refined, but it gives an idea of what the real one would look like. Besides the fountain, the real-life picture of the fountain (which also shows in the background the building mentioned above) helps appreciate how accurate the sl depiction is of its real life appearance. I just find it regrettable that what flows out of it is blood.

I admired the Escher-like pictures of the Galerias Carla. Her exhibit is titled: La magia de los Fractales (the Magic of Fractals). Just for that, the sim is well worth visiting! The pictures seen from close are much better than what my snapshot can show you here. It is actually a mix of Escher, fractals and surrealism, with places to sit and relax. Over 20 pictures await your visit!

Euskadi


There is also a strange park overgrown with wildflowers, with a burning police car, and a dolmen, right next to a two-cell prison, a intriguing juxtaposition of post-apocalyptic inner-city dereliction and mystic symbols.

Euskadi

The sim hosts a football stadium. It is also otherwise filled with uninspiring houses, though some of them display various shops. You can find statues, clothes (some for men), avatars and various other items. Perhaps of interest, there were freebies here and there.
