Venturing past the Steamlands is always tentative, with its own unique cultural memes (e.g. Zyngo, tarts, and other oddities), so knowing of small venues to receive a respite is always a welcome bit of knowledge. One said locales is a small floating destination titled "Steam Snail".

Steam Snail is the product of Mr. GianLuca Arashi, who kindly designed this unique outpost, with a bit of assistance from some mechanical friend (who can be seen helping "lift" the Steam Snail build). Simple but nicely designed, the location integrates both Steampunk and nautical themes in its construction.

If you happen to be subsumed by a plethora of noobs asking for "free donations" (aka, begging for lindens), or any other ill characterization or comportment while on the mainland, do consider a brief trip to indulge in one's genere of choice, by visiting Steam Snail, at: http://slurl.com/secondlife/herald/88/162/2423/ !
Alas, no one was home, but nice hookah - wonder what was being smoked....?

As one can see, there are two extra levels where one can visit and relax without disturbance!
