One measure I have of how compelling I find a destination in Second Life to be is by the total number of visits it takes me to photograph a blog post here. I usually end up highly recommending locations that I return to a minimum of five times, spending at least one hour per visit. Returning to the same destination multiple times is something that I never plan on doing -- it just ends up happening that way with destinations that are truly unique and pleasing to the eye.
Hattusa City is a very special place. Excellent architecture, waterfalls, landscaping and lighting all come together in a vision that I can best describe as psychedelic, and magically staged. I particularly liked the beams from the lighthouse islands that are needed to guide all the magical steampunk airships which dock in the sky. Light, glowing from inside the mists of falling water curtains, or emanating from magical machines and spheres which are located throughout and add so much to the atmosphere here.
Hattusa City has a retail shopping area underground, and also a very romantic dance area located at the water level in front of the amphitheater building shown above that can also be used when the club located there is not in session. Photographers will find Hattusa City to be a particular joy, since there is so much to photograph from so many unique angles. Just be prepared to spend a great deal of time here, and don't be surprised if you end of returning as many times as I did when you first visit.
