According to my trusty day counter its been well over a 1000 days since I started my rather eccentric “tradition” of posting Google Earth images of Sri Lanka. For the big picture, there’s the recently updated archive page. According to a poll I “conducted” a while back, a majority of respondents thought favourably of the whole Google Earth thing.
Of course the war gave plenty of opportunity to give add importance to patches of dry zone shrub jungle. The Iranamadu airstrip post which followed in the wake of the terrorist air attacks on Colombo got quite a bit of attention. So did the post about Thoppigala which earned my arm chair warlord credential (which I did have an arm chair)🙂.
Oddly enough my favourite ones are the seemingly irrelevant ones. Such as the Pillar of the Establishment post (pun unintended). The post about the military like boat spotted off the Jaffna coast stirred up my geeky curiosity. But enough about what I think.
Do you have any favourite Google Earth posts? Better your have you put up one on your blog?
