Fun with Google Earth

My friend at Another Hundred Years Hence recently discovered that Google Earth has new high resolution maps of Metro Manila and selected areas in the Philippines. And he recently set-up a wiki focused on landmarks in the Philippines seen on Google Earth. I had fun with the maps and most of the people I know ( including myself) used it to check if their (our) houses can be seen. It pays to be familiar with the roof of your home. Unfortunately, some of the areas could not be seen because of cloud cover.

Here are a brief description of pictures.
Picture 1: The Old Walled City and before that the Tagalog Kingdom at the mouth of Pasig River.

Picture 2: Again, Intramuros. From this one can understand the importance of the city - it controls the traffic to and fro the Pasig river.

Picture 3: UP Naming Mahal … Pamantasang …..

Picture 4: Cubao and home

Approaching Intramuros
