Recently in Durham a city not too far from where I live opened a Virtual
Reality Arcade. Awhile back I went in and tried it for the first time and
thought it was cool but I'm not a gamer so most of the stuff didn't appeal
to me, but nevertheless. . .

So now some time went by and I needed to run into Durham and it happened
that the VR Arcade was having a 50% off sale (regular is 20 bucks for 30
minutes but this time it was 10 for 30 minutes and if you book two you get
70 minutes for 20 bucks). What appealed to me was that I was going to go in
and spend my time exploring the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Yosemite, Lake
Victoria, etc.

So what happened. I went in and found myself spending the whole 70 minutes
cruising around Colotlan, Santa Maria de Los Angeles, Las Animas, Huejucar,
Tepetongo, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes then South to Tlaltenango and then just
started tripping around. What I found that was different from my previous
experience with regular Google Earth is that GE VR lets you "Fly" through
the area from as close as you can zoom in all the way up in space. So it was
just like I was taking a tour of the land my Ancestors traveled around at
various times in the past. I'd go down to ground level (blurry) but I could
look around 360 degrees and see the mountains and hills that they would see
everyday. I could then fly up to the top of the mountains and look down at
the various Ranchos I was visiting. To say the least I was quite impressed
and enjoyed my 70 minutes traveling through Jalisco, Zacatecas and
Aguascalientes

If you all have a VR Arcade anywhere close to you ask if they have GE VR
installed and consider checking the land of your Ancestors out as if you
were flying in a small airplane (not quite but pretty close).
