This is unrelated to piano and probably everyone already knows about this,
but I just discovered Google Street View a few months ago and wish to share, in case
others are curious about the places around the world in which our fellow
Tiny Google cars have been driving along the streets of cities and taking
pictures from all angles by using a multitude of cameras on the rooftops of each
of these cars. The images are being compiled for city after city.
For each city that has been completed, by using your computer arrows and mouse,
you can feel like the one driving the car and see fronts of buildings that,
unless you had the money for the airfare to actually travel to these places
and rent a car yourself, a person would not otherwise see. I am pasting an
example of a city which I think some of our pianists live in or near.
Doubleclick on the link below, then be sure to wait while NOT clicking anything
for a few seconds as just a plain map will initially show.
It will switch by itself from plain map to street view as you wait:
