Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?

Thought I'd have some fun with Google's earth mapping program. So, I'm putting up seven satellite shots of famous structures and landmarks. Your job is to figure out what/where these are in the world. Have fun!

Okay, well Barber just got 5 out of 7. He never comments, but I just wanted to let everyone know that he has set the bar. I guess these are easier than I thought. I would have put the over/under around 3.

#4, #5, and #6 are incorrect. Good job on #7. I think #4 is the toughest one, but I suppose it depends. There's just not that much context in that one.

Another friend, T-Bag, got 6 out of 7. He gave 5 correct answers (1, 2, 3, 4, 6), and two answers for #7, one of which was correct. So I guess that's a 5.5 - 6 out of 7.

Nice work, everyone. Glad so many of you enjoyed it.

#5 is, in fact, Shanghai's Pearl Tower. And, Dan, good work on guessing St. Louis before seeing the arch.

I guess #4 was probably near impossible, as there's not enough context... it is Mt. Fuji. T-Bag got that one, but it might have been more of a guess than anything.

Taj, Arc de Triomphe, Stonehenge, and Dubai are all correct.
