google earth

Does anybody else find themselves wasting (?) hours looking at the planet through google maps?  I think it might be my new obsession.  I can't help myself.  A mention of a place I don't know and I'm google-mapping it and, before I know it, have distracted myself for a long time.  Usually time I can't afford.  ;~P

But I can't express how enamoured I am of this planet, and how pretty it is.  The colours and shapes... I can look at them forever!


I was reading a news article this morning in which there was a reference to Lake Titicaca, and I realised, despite knowing the name really well, I had no idea where it was or what it looked like.  Enter google maps.  And, as per my usual style, I looked around a bit and found this pretty place -


...and ending up spending an hour trying to find the name of this body of water.  The best I can do is tell you that it's in Bolivia, south of Lake Titicaca, and west of Lake Poopo`.   Why doesn't google maps label water?  I've had this problem looking up rivers too.  Bad googlemaps!

But isn't it pretty?!
