I love Google Street View. You know, when you go to Google Maps and hover the little man over the map, and if you stick him on a street that highlights in blue you can see what it would have looked like if you'd been standing there the moment that the Google Street View car went through.

When I was a child, I would pore over maps for hours, memorizing roads and names of towns and wondering what it would be like to be there. Google Street View has enabled me to finally see some of these places without requiring me to leave the comfort of my chair.

So I "went" to Peru...

Where they evidently have lots of sand.
And pretty mountains.

And I went to Chile...

...and then I look at the place where I live...

...and realize that I am deprived.


  1. Wah . . . wah. . . Wah . . . this was brilliant. Look how gorgeous that scenery is! I find street view a bit creepy, to be honest.

    1. I don't find it too creepy, but that's probably because I'm a creeper. ;)
