Google Earth and Ambergris Caye...one of them is OUT OF DATE!
Google Earth really is state of the art stuff with its street level cameras, 3D topography. It's the space age personified, an amazing tool for everyone looking to get an idea of the layout of a mysterious new destination they might be visiting.
Don't take the Ambergris Caye aerials too literally, though. This is Grand Caribe according to Google Earth. I guess the bush grows quickly in the Tropics.
Seriously, Google, please put some updated photos of Ambergris Caye on your otherwise fabulous Earth program. Imagery 10 years or older really is pathetic. Which spacecraft took the photo, was it Sputnik?
