  1. Well, I don’t have a life, but I do have a job… and this is getting too addictive!

    Given the scale I can only guess either Nagano or somewhere on Hokkaido Island.

  2. Well, you’re on the right continent.

    As to the addiction - spread the word. Let’s make GoogleEarthing the next big thing.

  3. Hong Kong, then.

  4. Tell me where.

  5. Hong Kong island (or is it called Victoria), just below the westernmost tip of the island. Some waterfront development thingie just off the bottom left of your picture. My detailed street map of HK is at home, so you’ll have to wait a few hours for me to give you the actual street name. But I know that I’ve got!

    Alan ;)

  6. Well, that’s correct. It’s a development called Baguio Villas (I think that’s the spelling). My aunt and uncle lived in one of the pair of buildings just above the copyright notice for many years. On the 29th floor.

    And all the waterfront stuff wasn’t there when I visited in 1985. That’s been “recovered from the sea”.

    In the interests of your employability, I’m going to hold off any new images until tomorrow. I’ll probably settle into a rhythm of a couple a day.

  7. Thanks. My productivity plummeted today. BTW, I found your site via Small Dead Animals, so you might want to send a thank you Kate’s way.
