It has been a dizzying week with the Bellisserian Bureau of Bureaucracy. It is hard to keep up with all the activities going on! Tuesday There was a Meet and Greet in the Gallery where there was a showing art pieces in an exhibit called The Art of Travel. Amanda Tamatzui hosted with Dave (Lord Junibalya). There were many photos of travel places and ways to get there in the Gallery.
Michiel Bechir was the artist of the day. He spoke about his early life in art and his love of drawing from an early age and created some Comics in his teens and recently found some of them .They might appear somewhere in sl soon. He spoke of his love of travel and interacted with the audience answering questions.
I attended a party also at the Fairgrounds where Gιʂҽʅʅҽ Sƚɾҽҽƚҽɾ-LαƈσɱႦҽ (Giselle Lacombe) was the DJ and played great tunes for the attendees. Everyone is having such a good time . There is an ongoing attempt to get all the special visa stamps for this one week. As soon as people arrive at an event they start looking for the staff on the list I am doing well so far. It is not easy to capture a stamp from a dancer doing a stomping dance.
Wednesday The continent Sartori opened its embassy. Now all the continents have their own Embassy and Ambassador. It is similar in design but the Ambassador ,Bijoux Barr, art aficionado has set her imprint on it . There is a marvelous Japanese garden outside the Embassy building. There was a meet and greet held there before the ceremony . Abnor Mole arrived and the ceremony was held on the porch of the Embassy. The Honorable Ambassador accepted the key and promised to bring the Continent residents and Bellisseria closer together .
After the doors opened we took a look at the office that reflected the Ambassador herself then teleported over to the Fairgrounds for another great party . This party had Bsukmet Stormcrow as the entertainment who gave us some beautiful haunting music of original composition. It was a delightful party with many in attendance. Everyone turned out in their best formal wear.
Thursday morning many of the staff were back on the Fairgrounds to give those still hunting for special stamps a chance to grab them. I was happy to get two more. I am still hunting for one more elusive staff member with only three more days to get it! There was to be balloon tour but it was postponed and replaced by another boat tour with Captain Cʅαɯ Sƚɾҽҽƚҽɾ-LαƈσɱႦҽ (Claw Streeter) taking out a large boat and Yuki following him with a smaller one taking passengers who still needed to do the tour. I skipped that since I had completed it already. On to the rest of the week!
