How to tansport a fridge without too much effort in Seville, Spain


See map in Google Street View

It looks like in Seville, Spain, they know how to move a fridge without carrying it or using a truck. They used a shopping cart instead. However, the street was so narrow that the Google Car had to wait until they got to the end of the street. If you follow the pictures ahead you will see how it probably took a while to capture this street. Too bad we can't see the face of the "Google driver"

Passion in front of the Colosseum in Rome


See map in Google Street View

It looks like the Colosseum raises some primary instincts and so it must be so that this couple sank into this passionate kiss. Well, if you see the pictures before and after they are almost in the same position…maybe they are still there. Anybody visited Rome recently???

By the way, here is the picture before Google pixeling

Suspicious selling in Chicago




This one is already retired from Google Maps. Assumed that some drug selling was involved in this picture, some people in the Internet offered to provide the number plate to the police... Others say that the gentlemen standing might either be purchasing the car or asking for directions to the Operahouse.
The picture is already updated in Google but if you want to have a virtual walk in such a nice neighbourghood use this link:
