My wife kinda squicked out when she saw that the street-level view of our house in Google maps included our children outside playing on the lawn. A little too 1984-ish? Can one opt out?

Done. But with errors.

It's criminal that they don't have Sydney yet - being the most beautiful city in the world and all - but nice to have both Riga & Liepaja represented.

"if you can't be there, click here" - unless you are curious about the continent of Africa.
Some incredible photography from the represented cities, though.
