It's Awesome


So self proclaimed geography nerd Naseem said I should download Google Earth, I never really got what the big deal was. Looking at rooftops? But I was wrong. It's so damn cool! I'm looking at my old addresses and went to the Eifel Tower. I found my building first which was not easy since the street names aren't on it but I found us! Egypt is indeed very beige. Looking at NJ there's so much green! I want to zoom in all the way inside the houses, people!

  3. I love Google Earth too! I found the condo we lived in in Egypt. And I have fun tracing back the walk to the metro or the walk to certain stores I liked, etc. So beige, it's nuts. I go to my city here in Quebec and it's sooo greeeen.

  5. Candice, yea it's great. I found that it's so clear in in the US & Canada, Maybe the smog in Egypt is a problem!

  9. I love google earth.

    What's crazy about it is that the building I work in isn't on it yet! They haven't updated the images from this area of town, apparently, in a few years.

    But I can look at my house and see my car in the driveway.

  10. Designerd, yea the little island in the middle of our street should have a statue but it doesn't yet on google earth. Why does seeing your car in the driveway seem kinda weirdly creepy?
