Singin' Songs About the Swampland

The Hangover One landed in the Great Dismal , a Louisiana bayou-themed sim just off ZATZAi and near Artificial Island in the United Sailing Sims/Blake Sea area. I motored to a berth in the Beristan Marina and alit to see the area by foot.

As a Caledonian, I am used to modern inventions - we have horseless carriages, of course - but this...vehicle (?) is hideous and, though no one was inside, appears to be running. Have these modern people no concern for the environment?

Climbing a ridge, I could see the radar array and main hangar of ZATZAi. On my return voyage from the Great Dismal, I encountered several pilots in very futuristic aircraft traveling at high speeds, and creating substantial air turbulence, so pilots be warned.

This is bayou country, as the banyan trees and fog indicate. Interestingly, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service administer The Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge , which is located in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina.

Though the area is quite new, it already has some residents who have passed on.
I encountered only one living soul in the area, a young lady (five days old, so a very young lady indeed) with an oddly-proportioned shape and system hair, trying on various articles of clothing. It was an odd sight, but, being a polite sort of person, I greeted her, and was gratified to recieve a reply (even if it was a "hi").
