Every now and then I'll get on Google Earth and look over some city. A while ago I browsed Mogadishu, the main city in Somalia. What a sad sight. It looks like at one time it was a vibrant modern city. But today it appears almost deserted. Few cars, streets dusty, unmaintained, roofs caving in on many buildings and houses. Found a large cathedral there, now just a shell.
