Caracas on Google Earth

The quality on Google Earth is not very good (as I expected), but it was put online before than I thought. In the picture above you can see at the center a large green area. That's the Universidad Central de Venezuela in Caracas, the biggest university in the country. It has also a pair of stadiums, one of baseball and one of football. North west from the university you can see a black area called Parque Central, or Central Park. These two buildings are the tallest buildings in South America since 1979, you can see a picture of one of them below.

That was the glorious past of the building. Last year there was a fire that lasted for more than 19 hours and destroyed a lot of the building. A sad view is left on Caracas. Watch for yourself.
