Cannot agree more with that. A lot of the time with the pictures you see online they're often tweaked with techniques and effects to emphasise (or exaggerate) whatever they're trying to depict - makes the place look pretty, but could also put the reality way out of perspective. Whenever I'm 'discovering' a new place online I always go for the raw, unedited stuff and it's videos like those that show the true character of the area.

my son was born in a different country so for us it's fun to be able to see the city where he was from like this. youtube has some good videos too. there are a few people who take videos while driving around town and it's really cool to show him these and get a good feel for the way the city really looks, opposed to a travel agency point of view.

This is so cool. Especially when it's filmed at 1:30am

I use street view a lot. I like to look at the tourist attractions and famous places of most major cities. I'm also interested in seeing the more dangerous areas of cities that the average tourist won't go to such as the favelas in Rio, the townships in Cape Town or the ghettos in America. There's always so much happening in these areas and they're much more interesting to explore on street view than the boring suburban areas in the US or UK.

Yeah. Been exploring Camden NJ, Compton, East St. Louis, Detroit, and the 93rd arrondissement of Paris a lot.

Which one is you favorite? Also, what area of the 93 do you prefer? Compton is disappointing, I guess nothing beats first-hand experience. Cairo, IL is photogenic on Street View.

The Nordkapp area looks like parts of Scotland.

I've also done quite a bit of exporing in those cities. Its quite shocking how bad the cities look. Compton actually doesn't look that bad compared to Camden or Detroit but I know looks can be decieving. Parts of Baltimore look just as bad as Camden. I find myself looking at Paris a lot aswell especially Clichy-Sous-Bois and Saint Denis. Marseille is also an interesting city to explore.

Specific features along vulnerable exploitation among the horizons when people are able to see that much on a digital screen computer window before visiting! Please don’t give these specific details away prior to going! At least not obnoxiously overboard usage of daily habits for a single particular access point. Solid advice from my own experience. I never ruined my own International countries travels that way. Just quick temporary peaks at what I might encounter. Avoid themes of capture everything if enter the foreign adventure.
