You can view this kml file as an overlay on Google Maps too. A gift shows up at the North Pole with today's clue in it. Going to the location for the answer to the clue does not seem to turn up anything on this map though.

I got it! (Using Google, of course)

On Google Earth I can't see the present, but on Google Maps I can. I know where the place is so I don't know what I'm doing wrong, because the kml is already open.

It's rather easy to solve this one without leaving Google Earth ... and without thinking, actually. :-)

(Just search for "Bombay", and it will bring you right there.)

Yeh Michael Schaap I did that and I was kind of surprised that they said "formally" if it is then they need to update their database. :P

Next question in line, via Googe Maps, is...

"This city, whose name literally means "northern capital," will be host to the 2008 Olympic Games."

For the texture of the presents, all I see is Xs... Anyone else have this problem?

Santa is on the north pole, WF. You'll be taken straight to him when you open the santa.kml file.

For those that can't see it in Google Earth, are you running the most current version of GE? The most recent version of Beta 4 was released on November 4th, and is required to see the Toy. I don't believe you will get the most recent version by using the auto updater.

Well, I guess I'll have to check back daily since I can't get the Santa KML file to open in GE for me. I can view the presents just fine, but the rest doesn't seem to work.

WF, you can also just talk here...

Santa has two Wives!!!

Mrs. Clause is standing outside the house on the right (facing left), but she's also standing inside the center section of the house behind the tree, in front of the fireplace! Inside, she's facing right.
