Google Earth Easter Egg - Sketch Up! Reference Drawning on Google Earth

Open the Google Earth application, updated to the version mentioned here.
After all the loading stuff, press Ctrl + Shift + P.

A window will appear. In the LATITUDE space, type 48°51'39.66"N (as showed).
Below, in the LONGITUDE space, type 2°20'9.27"E (as showed too).

Click on the tab "View". In this tab, your screen must look EXACTLY like this:

LATITUDE: 48°51'39.66"N

LONGITUDE: 2°20'9.27"E


HEADING: -75.000000°

TILT: 56.000000°

*For more accurate typing, copy and paste the values.

Then click OK.

On the "Layers" menu (below, at right), check the "3D Buildings" option - first of all, make sure the "Layers" menu is extended. If it's not, click on the small arrow beside the word LAYERS -.
You'll have to wait some minutes for the 3D buldings to load. Meanwhile, open the "PLACES" menu, extend the "Temporary Places" folder, and double-click on the placemark inside the folder (Standard name is "Untitled Placemark").

It will take you inside the Pyramids of the Louvre Museum, on France. There you'll see a small drawning beside the placemark (a female human, to be exactly) made on Google's Sketch Up! (Google's application where you can create any kind of drawning). This reference was inserted to show that all the 3D buldings were done using that application, and to enphasize the endless sorts of drawning in the app!
Very funny!
