On the Map!

3D renderings of some of Querétaro's buildings can now be seen on Google Earth!

Now, we know what you're thinking -- So fucking what? -- but that's because you're unfamiliar with Mexico's absolute desperation for recognition. Here, inclusion in an online map of the entire fucking world merits a mayoral press conference, banner headlines, and editorial cartoons hailing Querétaro as being "on the map." It's hard sometimes to remember this is a 500-year-old city with a million people and a thriving aerospace sector.

(Of course, lest we be accused of picking on Mexico [which, okay, we suppose we are], our own hometown was mighty psyched to be included on Google Street View.)

At the moment there are 749 Querétaro structures visible in 3D.  The Burro Hall offices are not among them, primarily for security reasons.

I have a hard time imagining anyone I know in Puerto Vallarta working in an aerospace plant making things that would help a machine fly. Even the most diligent person would likely take a hip flask of refreshment or some codeine cough syrup to the plant just to make the day less of a drudge. Oh yeah, and now you're all in 3-D. Progress.
