I’ve only recently downloaded Google Earth when I heard that they now have photos of the Philippines. For a map addict, this certainly is great news.
The first thing I looked for, was of course, my house. It was actually disconcerting, because it’s easy to get lost of you’re looking at Metro Manila (or any other city, I suppose) from above. It’s easy though, once you recognize familiar landmarks and roads.
My route marker was Quezon Memorial Circle. Elliptical road really IS elliptical. Before I tracked the road to my house, however, I got distracted by these interestingly-shaped buildings in the Quezon Avenue/Agham Road/East Avenue area. Can you identify these buildings?
After locating my house, I made my way back to EDSA and followed the highway to Makati. When I was still living in JP Rizal and Kamagong, I always pass by the South Cemetery. Not once in my 3 years of living in Makati did I ever venture to go inside. It’s really fascinating to see it from a bird’s eye view though.
Speaking of fascinating, how’s this for contrast?
