You're absolutely right, Hardi. My town has not been clear until now.

Though there are some clouds disturbing view.. shouldn't they first add clean pictures about towns? I live in a town that is second size in Estonia.. the biggest is capital with population 430000 people, that one they are made clear, but seems that 105000 people isn't enough to them. Instead they chose some forest and farms.. yeah probably those forest have big population of mosquitoes.. but the image is still unclear to see them.

I think they should try harder to impress me.

:lol: It seems like they're doing a Mickey Mouse job on your town.

Mickey mouse Job? What's that? By the way I think I had also a little chance to be 100 000's person in my town. Since I born in same year when the town got that population first time. So you see the town haven't grown much after that. Actually it dwindle a lot on 90

"Mickey Mouse" is a slang expression used as a diminutive adjective and adverb meaning small-time, amateurish or of inferior quality. A poorly executed construction project, for instance, could be pejoratively described as a "Mickey Mouse job". Presumably, this comes from the insinuation that the object or action in question was taken as seriously as a Mickey Mouse cartoon (that is to say, not at all). The term does not imply any actual connection to Mickey.

An alternative theory comes from the fact that Mickey Mouse watches were notorious for breaking down.

I found it with the help of the link she posted on the original post. However, the image is not as clear as the one on google maps.

:shock: No wonder. I saw someone lurking around my side-door. I thought it was a black guy, but now come to think of it I think it might be either you or Hardi. :twisted:

Only those 3. But I thinking to upload more to there.. Later. I must check if I have some worth of upload.

EDIT
Okay I uploaded some more photos to site, but it takes time to them before they will apply to google earth. If at all... Cos night views are just same as before, but the quality is better (less blurry).
