so far today, i have been to the Florida Keys; Tallin, Estonia; St. Petersburg and Moscow, Russia; Cape Town, South Africa; and i tried, in vain, to retrace my trip through Morocco from Marakkesch to Zagora ... funny how the GIS gets less detailed the further into the desert one goes.



Cape Town looks fab, though.

so far today: Buenos Aires; Rio; back to Brussels where i found my old house but can't seem to locate the Grand Place because all the street names on GoogleEarth are in Flemish and i only (sort of) speak French. or used to only sort of speak French.



still, best city to "fly" around: Cape Town.
