Yesterday I saw the famous GOOGLE CAR in the area.
It is a car with 8 cameras and a laser radar which are all used to create the 3D effects,
for the "Google Street View".
So if you want to take your own virtual tour of Stavanger, check out this link,
You have to drag the "yellow man" over on to the map!

I've had a fabulous ride around Stavanger courtesy "Google car" and I find it amazing that the houses are not made of brick - Is it timber. I would have thought it too cold to be living in non-brick homes. Do you have central heating.
Great ride and so lovely to see another part of the world for free.

I am glad you explained it. I thought it was a photo of a car returning from a "tag sale", "garage sale" or whatever you call small local sales in your area.

I saw this kind of vehiclo a couple of years ago and after few months Livorno appeared on StreetView. I wasn't able to catch it at the time and I am glad you did!

Does this mean that you are now on streetview? I have seen these vehicles here in NZ, too.
