    Coordinates are in the upper-right corner of the page. Type 'em in. Keep in mind that Google Earth might not have up-to-date imagery in that area that shows the Bird's Nest in its completed state (I haven't checked).

    Yeah, they're a bit slow to update their image files. I've apparently been living on a pile of dirt for the past 3 years. :rolleyes:
