You are right! I enjoy seeing all other places in the world too! Google has gone a long way to provide exact replica of all the buildings around the world using sketchup. In fact Google has been hosting a competetion to all 3d modelers to design the city they live in, or at least anyone doing 3d models are encouraged to share their works to be uploaded to google earth....That is really a brilliant idea! which makes google earth more addicting
