Feeling nostalgic this afternoon for my Peace Corps days, I did a Google Earth fly-by of my adoptive community, ColÃ³nia Once de Setiembre. Not only does Google show the site in high-resolution, the images are clear enough to see a patch of trees I planted with my neighbor in 1997. Judging from the shadows, our token attempt at reforestation must be at least 10 meters tall now.
The miracle of the internet also allows me to confirm that the economy of Once de Setiembre hasn't changed much since I left.
It would be hard to see the ants from that altitude, though.
What sort of trees were those, Alex?
A native one, I hope...
Too bad there are no street views.
Aydin: I can see ants. [grin]
