Home from the sky

It used to be exciting to look out of the window when you land or take off. I still remember the red tips of the Golden Gate bridge emerging out of the thick white fog like the two horns of a holy cow on the banks of Ganges. That was a special memory, but in recent times, the generic ‘from-sky-views’ arent that exciting. Why bother, when one can check them out, not as a glance, but in detail on Google Earth?
