Al Andalus in Second Life

There is an interesting episode of Designing Worlds that visits the Second Life sims of Al Andalus where residents have created impressive recreations of historic real-life buildings you'll find in the Alhambra region.

The community in Second Life has an interesting story to tell about this historic region and the Islamic influences.

There is a quick mention that Dancing Ink Productions has held some of their Islamic-focused events on this build.
