Kimendero’s nightmare? Googleardi, part 6

Ear­lier this week, Goog­le released a new ver­si­on of its earth view­er pro­gram­me Goog­le Earth — a sta­ble BETA 4 which I just had to down­load and try out.
As far as I can tell, the new BETA loo­ks pro­mi­sing, making navi­ga­ti­on much easier and fas­ter (!) — and of cour­se with a new release, they also imple­men­ted some “new” maps/satellite images:

For down­town Nai­ro­bi, the guys run­ning the image data­ba­se added a CLOUDY satel­li­te image — which is still bet­ter than what we had some time ago.

Goog­le Earth is also per­fect for tracking down the various swim­ming pools all over Nai­ro­bi. Some­thing that might come in han­dy while in Nai­ro­bi, in search for an open swim­ming pool. After all, not all pools are pri­va­te (which of cour­se reminds me of Mbu­zi­mo­ja & me try­ing to find an open pool in NBO as late as 8pm — the only place open till 9pm is.…THE GRAND REGENCY HOTEL, which char­ges Kshs. 1.000 /= pp.…ate­re­re…).
