3rd Google Earth Challenge

What major city is located in this image? What names have this city been called in the past? What is geographically interesting about this city?


The city in the Google Earth challenge is Istanbul. It has gone by a few names but most would know it as Constantinople or Stamboul. Something cool about it's geography is that is kind of like a bridge between Asia and Europe. My grandmother grew up in Istanbul but once she moved here she never went back.

Where in the world is this? Email Mr. Lovera with the location along with something interesting about the place.


The picture is from Timbuktu, Mali. It was used to house prisoners during WW2.

The location is Timbuktu !! Timbuktu was founded in 1100 CE. This was a hard one! I figured the squiggly line was a river and that helped me search famous African cities with rivers running into them.

Where in the world is this? Email Mr. Lovera with the location along with something interesting about the place.

HINT: The ruins of one of the earth's great ancient civilizations is located in the middle of the image.


That clue helped a lot. The location is Machu Picchu in Peru. 

It is from the Incan Empire. An interesting fact it that this place has more then 100 sets of stairs.
