More imagery (60 cm) available in latest Google Earth update

Another data update has been mentioned in the Google Lat/Long blog. Once again we're provided with clues to try and figure out where we can find new imagery. Apparently there's updates for some 130 countries! Some of the clues are as follows:
1) I don't mean to "flatter," but this remote Northwestern cape is very beautiful.
2) You can now explore the ruins of this ancient Mayan city, first discovered in 1934.
3) This small Peruvian village attracts many tourists each year for the Incan ruins atop nearby hills.
4) This city claims to be the southernmost city in the world, with approximately 64,000 residents.
5) Home of the Russian Pacific Fleet, this city is also Russia's largest Pacific coast harbor
