A respite from quarantine

So I've just discovered the joys of Mapcrunch, that shows you random street views of random places. The Options button lets you choose specific countries and urban or indoor or whatever, though streetview's idea of urban is not mine. But it's amazing how much umm empty countryside there is in the world. If I leave the app to its own devices, all I see is fields and steppes and the occasional Malaysian highway. Did get a road in the Isle of Man once, which suggests to me that the Isle of Man really needs to attend to its infrastructure, because it looked like a waterlogged track through a wheatfield.
