As an additional clue the region next door reminds us to spare a thought for the Hippos

Yes - thanks for the clue about "Please think of the Hippos!" - The underwater dome is Perugia Rez Zone,  by Garden Mole.

A thread in General discussions has reminded me of a game we used to play on one of the sailing forums. Basically the idea is that someone posts a photo of themselves somewhere recognisable in SL

I believe that is the lighthouse in Gaeta, Lastness Region in the Coastal Waterway 214,104,22?   Now, is anyone brilliant enough to figure out where this is? (The clue is in the question.)

Aethelwine, you were at Brenner enjoying the dinosaurs created by Torley Linden.

It is worth visiting... the other statues around it don't really show properly in my photo, but they are fun :)

Clue: I can never visit this place without remembering the story by Terry Pratchett, as referenced in ispace "The only excitement in Al-Ybi occurred when the greedy Seriph of the city was cursed by a dyslexic diety so that everything he touched turned into "glod". Glod was a blameless dwarf in a far off mountain community who found herself being dragged to Al-Ybi and relentlessly duplicated. Over two thousand Glods later, the curse wore off. To this day, the people of Al-Ybi have a reputation for being both bad-tempered and short in stature."

Spellcheck wants to turn "Glod" into "Good"....

It is in Marmara:

Fun location, lots to see and explore around there.

Whilst we are underwater here I am with my Trident from Marmara, but where am I?

Found it! Frumatay 32,237/2 . Thank you, Adamburp, for the clue about the Easter Egg. Good thing I'm a born Liverpooler.

Rufferta, it looks like you spent so long looking for the earlier one you have grown a beard !

I do know this one... as a sailor and cruise maker it is very familiar... but I will refrain from answering at least for a while to give someone else a chance :)

That small island between Belli-Fishtown and Pryri ("Moordor").  Slurl forthcoming once I get in SL again.

Correct! Technically known as the Pyri Peaks Funfair Dock. The boat takes you from the island across to the Pyri Funfair, an old haunted amusement park courtesy of the Moles.

Where is this?  If it helps, I used to have a Chinese-themed estate near there.

This is the Pyri Box Office, in Pyri at the end of Route 3A. You can pick up a ticket for the start of your journey to the Pyri FunFair.

This is a Michael Linden build. Until today I hadn't noticed the "Corn Field Prize" beside it.

This is my 'games' alt - Ruffertasalt, who is impatiently waiting to go back to the latest MadPea game.

By the Great Wall of China, though I was one of the last of the folks sticking to a Chinese/Asian theme, and I left a few years ago.  Officially it's the Great Wall of Second Life.  And yep, the Pyri Box office leads to the Pyri FunFair (they're two different regions, not near each other).

It is the Grief Containment pond at Cecropia 

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Cecropia/145/109/23

It is a curious place the pipe the leads into it runs all the way to the Prim Oil rig where prims are dropped in to the other end of the pipe unless you pull a lever there and for a while crystals come out instead.

I have found my way to an Explorers Information Centre on a steep bit of path\road well away from the old world continents of the Atoll and Sansara.Snapshot_032.jpg.e473d4bcff4a2ae9c1c77c1d428c5b4b.jpg

Do you know where I am?

Hint, if you look closely you can actually see the road number, but if you look for it on the Linden Dept for Public Works Roads page on the wiki you won't find it because the page hasn't been updated in so long... but if you look under the road network directory for the continent, you will find the road.

If you walk into the pipe entrance, you'll eventually get blocked.

You are very brave exploring down there, I hope you wore more protective gear getting there. 

That grief under containment pond does make me wonder what they are doing and the impact of that green coloured industrial waste. 

In my naive and idealistic mind I had thought prims were eco friendly building materials with no negative environmental consequences, but the grief containment pond tells a different and more troubling story I think we all deserve to know more about.

This is the Explorer's Information Center on Route 12 in Tyranus, Nautils (151/31/54).  I love the 3-D trail map inside.
