All I can say is, this is approximately where one would expect to find St. Paul's Cathedral in the city of London, and according to the documentation, St. Paul's Cathedral is sup-posed to be simulated in the Western European Tour, and there is a building of some sort down there. But surely any other resemblance to St. Paul's Cathedral, living or dead, is purely coincidental. This building must have been digitized in one of those famous London fogs. Architect Sir Christopher Wren is probably turning over in his grave at this depiction of his baroque masterpiece, which even in this day of skyscrapers dominates the London landscape with its massive proportions and great dome, topped by a Golden Ball.

What? You don't even see a dome? Time you cleaned your glasses.
