12. I've done that.

The places that I've checked out on Google Earth aren't near as interesting as yours, but it was still fun.

When I was a child back in the sixties, my father was stationed at a base in Mainz, Germany.

I remembered that there was a cemetery right behind our military housing that had a pedestrian bridge going over a highway to another cemetery. I checked out google earth (almost fifty years after I lived there), and I actually found the highway with the pedestrian bridge connecting two cemeteries......and the building I lived in was still there also.

I've also found the address of the place my father grew up in (1920's), and I was pretty surprised that place was still there. I'd never seen it in person, but it was still pretty much how he described it to me.
