Google Earth Quiz :)

hi!
10 pics from google earth
who can tell me what they show?


1. what is it? i think thats not easy IMO, but we will see, maybe i´m wrong



2. what is it? (thats easy IMO)


3. it´s a airport, but tell me the city


4. tell me the city


5. tell me the city (will be easy for many poster on this board)


Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood
