Merida via Google Maps

I used to spend alot of time walking the streets of Merida using Google maps, street version. However the views getting so old now, almost everything has changed. I've gone back today and looked at my house and it's still the old version, taken sometime after 2007 but before 2010. It was really easy to explore where friends had reported restuarants or coffee shops. I even traced some of the paths to newly owned home reported purchased to see what was happening! The streets views of Merida have changed so much in the past few years. More houses have been rehabbed. Business have gone in and out of business. It's not much fun to walk the streets via Google maps! I wish it would be updated! I feel like a walk....

  1. That's my favorite pastime, too. I posted a thing once about something I call google maps roulette. Just close your eyes and drag the little yellow figure to any random street and see what you see. I think what you will see is Merida in 2009.

  2. Take heart! I saw a google vehicle with camera driving through Santiago in early May.
