Tired legs, body and brain

Categories: Geography General, s1 and s2

I cycled in the Pedal for Scotland event today, and my knees feel like someone has hit them with a sledgehammer. This general poor state has spread to my brain too. I was reading a blog that I subscribe to and saw reference to a google maps streetview game. Had a look at it to see if it would be a nice homework for s1. I'm afraid I got killed several times by a security guard at the warehouse, probably because I couldn't work out the coded letter. I am sending out a plea for help on this one...

Also saw one for the holidays with onion map, where you can view a city by its major attractions, including price, admission times etc. Spent some time looking at Barcelona, a place I really want to visit again in the future (image above).

Finally, I blogged about Thirst and a class homework recently, and was interested in another eco-aspect of water consumption. This is a story about a company in New York, who are selling New Yorkers bottled NYC tap water on the grounds it's more environmentally friendly as it doesn't have to travel far! Only in America :-)
