In RL Greece is a country in South Eastern Europe consisting of 2 mainland peninsulas and thousands of islands throughout the Aegean and Ionian seas. It's often called the birthplace of Western civilization, and Athens, its capital, retains ancient landmarks including the 5th-century-B.C.E. Acropolis citadel and Parthenon temple. Greece is also known for its beaches, from the black sands of Santorini to the party resorts of Mykonos.
And in SL we have the Greek Islands, run by Edemon and Frederikia Gausman. Sweethearts Jazz Club is proud to feature The Greek Islands as one of our loyal advertisers.
Edemon is Greek and lives in Greece. He graduated from an American College in Greece and he runs his own computer related business. A good friend of his recommended that he join SL as a way of expressing his creativity with building in particular.
He started the Greek Islands with one region at the end of 2013. His rationale for starting the estate was, and still is, to present Greece in SL as Edemon said “To show the spirit of our white and blue.” The estate currently consists of 13 regions, Greece, Santorini Island, Myconos, Zakynthos, Ios Island, Parthenon, Dionysus Symposium, Yakynthos, Dilos, Super Paradise, Euboea, Frederika, Strofades, all named for RL Greek Islands or locations, apart from Frederika which is named for his partner.
Edemon is a true romantic and said he finds inspiration for his creations from his muse and partner Frederika. However, the need to present the real face and the eternal beauty of his RL country, is also a constant motivation for him.
There is a regular schedule of entertainment on the estate with the two clubs that can be found on the estate. On Bouzouki is Paradiso Club ..http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dionysus%20Symposium/152/74/55
And the Golden Sunset Lounge Bar on Santorini
The first is dedicated to traditional and contemporary Greek music while the second has international DJ sets every day. There are also live performances every Friday night (CET) either at Golden Sunset Lounge Bar or at Parthenon or at Castle Ridgetale.
Edemon reiterated that his motives to create the Greek Islands were other than that of making a profit. He said “I strongly believe that in order to achieve profitable levels in SL business, you either have to offer your brain capital (building, scripting etc.) or own many, many regions, over 100, in the rentals business. The rental prices are just providing me a break-even-point revenue.”
He has plans to further develop The Greek Islands by establishing a strong support team, who will be able to immediately offer any kind of assistance that is required. Also to have a representation of some of Greece’s historical sites is on the cards.
It is worth your while to pay The Greek Islands a visit to see the most realistic representation of the Parthenon in SL. Or you could make it your home in SL, the people are warm and welcoming, the sands are warm, the turquoise seas are inviting and the white and blue architecture is iconic of Santorini.
