FUN WITH GOOGLE MAPS-EUROPE!
Here are some Google Map finds from Europe. Battle and cruise ship. In London, England. Barcelona, Spain. This is a mesmerizing overhead view of an old city. The street layout and condensed housing make a neat pattern. The Eiffel Tower, France. Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Once the world's tallest buildings, these twin towers now fall short of the Taipei 101. Vatican City. Fernsehturm, Berlin, Germany Around 1,100 ft tall, this tower was used by the East German government when Berlin (and Germany) was divided into East and West. It once was used for TV and radio from the Communist Government of East Germany and is now a tourist spot with a cafe on the observation deck, about 650 ft up. It looks like an olive on a toothpick so be sure to check out the homepage to understand it's height. Pan to the left and look in the park to see the large, golden statue on the pedistal used in a lot of European films. Link: Berlin Television Tower
