It should still be on the right side if you mouse-over it; some description here. I prefer just using the zoom, once you get near the subject GE automatically tilts. Below is the oblique (such as it is) of the giant kiwifruit with the helipad just in front of it.

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Thanks to everyone for all the lovely MAPS! both in the threads and here! :hearts:

I am trying to snag the MAPS you all have shared in the threads and embed them here, and am hopefully nearly up to date (except for poor Kazakhstan :lol:)!  I know, I know, I am a little slow right now....

So please, if you have shared a map in the threads and have your link somewhere and see that I have missed it, PLEASE add it here or PM me so I can add it in! I REALLY don't want to miss any goodies and I especially do NOT want us to lose any attached and not embedded MAPS! in one of the intermittent purges.  :ascared

Please also let me know anytime if you have better ones or new discoveries! :jumpy:  Peachy the librarian would love to add them to the pile!

Legs 1. 2, 3, and 4 have been updated!

Have we decided on One Tree Hill? Here's an interactive map of Cornwall Park which surrounds Maungakiekie.
Also, if you have the patience NZ Topo Online can give you details on the Papamoa hills.

Ooooh NICE!

Well, I like One Tree Hill but it could also be Mt Eden...someone besides me needs to compare the view in the preview to the views I have linked to...I can't be sure.

I'm having quite a lot of trouble with the kiwi orchard; all I know is that Marissa/Brooke, on their way there from Kiwi 360°, pass the junction of Jamieson St and Highway 2 in Te Puke before arrival; that that the farm's name starts with a P, and the address is a Number 63. Any help? :duno:

The cattle belong to Loren Poole, who owns a property just outside Te Puke. On his farm he grows all the ingredients for a great dinner party. Prime beef, kiwi fruit and flowers. Most of his flowers end up in Japanese floral arrangements but his kiwi fruit are exported around the world.

Loren Poole feeds his reject kiwi fruit to his cows. "It's good for their coats," he tells me as a large steer snatches a snack out of his hand.

I've come across that name as well; here's an entry describing his farm as "about half an hour's drive from Te Puke." For being the go-to guy for foreign journalists he certainly keeps a low profile: no web presence and no listing in the white pages (although most people around there give their farm names--e.g. Summerhill). I tried matching the logo, but no luck.

I'll throw in this page as well. I found it while looking through webcams, but it has a decent street map of major Romanian cities.

Here is an excellent map of downtown Almaty (the link on Page 1 doesn't work for this leg!)
Almaty downtown http://infokz.com/city/eng/empcen.htm
Most of the action seems to take place on the left (western) side of this map. The building that Boingo identifed seems to be the Oblast Akimat Building in the Old Square on Tolebi St whereas the former Parliament building aka Akimat House is on Republic square on Satpaev St. Here's another good map http://kazakhstan.orexca.com/img/map_almaty1.jpg (unfortunately upside down from the last one, ie S up!) with the buildings marked. In this map the mosque is now on the top left corner, with the Green Bazar and cathedral below it, continuing into Dostyk Ave where the restaurant Alasha is (also ID ed by Biongo, off the map where it crosses the river, link here http://www.alasha.kz ).

fixed :tup:
