It’s All About Perspective

I was playing around with Live Earth and Google Maps (mostly to figure out just how far Yammy and I walked in Pisa – see previous post).  I found my current house, my sister’s house, my first primary school, my boarding school, my last house in Brisbane and my new love, Dubrovnik.   (Both Mum’s place and the family farm in Yanco didn’t have the resolution.)  All nice places that look a bit ordinary in satellite pics. 
 
Obversely, my childhood town of Karumba actually looks pretty lovely, as long as you stay far enough away.  Somewhat apt, actually.
