Re: Where are we? (GoogleEarth Quiz)

Here is one that is fun.  But I will give the location, and you can find out what is there.

Put this in your Google Earth, or just put it into the Google search engine.  When viewing  Google Maps, select satellite view. Then zoom in. big_smile

^ me too. At first I thought it was Taipei 101 but when I zoomed in I noticed I was wrong.
@ machinebacon: this was new to me but indeed shocking and a perfect example of megalomania.

Re: Where are we? (GoogleEarth Quiz)

Yeah, I mean the strange colours which look like lakes (and actually are, kind of). It's funny: if you know the location, you know what is special about the lakes - and if you know the lakes, you know the location (this area of the city nearby is quite famous - very famous, actually)

Indeed it is a famous north-west wall, but not at the Eiger. Also it is not limestone, but igneous rock.
