Fougères, Brittany, France
Here's another scene I came across on Google Street View while working on my projects today. I find the stone masonry and varying heights to be quite charming. Across the street from these houses is a French chateau with a moat. Here's a link to explore this spot yourself:,-1.2098708,3a,75y,237.76h,89.54t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1svpdaWwKiCJtEw6Gfc1SdUA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Fougères is a lovely place. Keep driving around until you find the castle.

Thanks to Google Street View, you can also check out some of the more famous waterfalls around the world. This one is situated on the border between Argentina and Brazil. You can explore the waterfall yourself here:,-54.4379711,3a,75y,228.28h,77.85t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1siZz1SoLBuoym13GjjO7Qug!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Here's a Google Street View scene in San Luis Potosi, Mexico that I came across today while continuing to work on the places of interest list for my research projects. The city has a number of lovely large stone buildings.

Here's a scene I came across in Aguadas, Colombia on Google Street View while continuing to work on the places of interest list for my research projects. I don't see fog too often on Google Street View. This place is situated high up in the mountains.

I just began to work on analyzing the places that I find to be of interest outside of what I define as the "DESW" or "Developed English Speaking World" in my population data research projects. This particular scene that I came across while working on this is in Cidade de Goiás, Goiás, Brazil. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its interesting Baroque architecture, traditions, and natural beauty. Analyzing these places has felt like such a relieving change after focusing exclusively on Canada, the USA, British Isles, Australia, New Zealand, and the southern portion of the African continent.

Here's an overview of the projects and activities that I worked on and partook in over the past week. The screenshots in the thumbnail showcase a comparison I made during my write up to help explain the reasoning behind a classification system I've made to help better compare different urban places. 
This week I continued to make progress on my usual DESW "Developed English Speaking World" population data research project. I finished a stage regarding the places of interest list, continued to break down places by classification, started a new stage, and worked on some theories regarding interesting places.Once I had finished the stage of classifying and ranking the 500+ places identified as "interesting" in my places of interest data table, I...

As I've been continuing work on my projects and exploring places in Spain on Google Street View, I came across a mountainous area of Cantabria that I've been enjoying quite a bit. There are numerous little villages composed of stone scattered across the dynamic landscape. I've also noticed a large number of off road vehicles in the area.

Here's an overview of the projects and activities that I worked on and partook in over the past week. The screenshot included in this post is of two windows being floated side by side on my desktop. On the left is my places of interest spreadsheet showing how I have some new columns, and on the right is Google Street View imagery of one of my favourite places that I've encountered while working on analyzing Latin America over the past week.

Another scene in Brazil from Google Street View. This time in São Francisco do Sul in Santa Catarina. It is a charming port town, the oldest in the entire state. I've enjoyed analyzing places in Brazil for a change.

Here's an overview of the projects and activities that I worked on and partook in over the past week. The left screenshot in the thumbnail showcases Vigan, Philippines, one of the places of interest that I found this week as I analyzed Google's recent Street View introduction for the Philippines. The right screenshot showcases one of the diagrams I made to help better explain and visualize the urban classification theory I've been working on. 
This week I continued to make progress and finally finished another stage regarding my places of interest list for my usual DESW "Developed English Speaking World" population data research project. I have now finished assessing all the places in my "might be interesting" list and ranked and classified all of the places that are situated in what I define as the DESW. The number of places in my places of interest list, which includes those situated...

I went for another bicycle ride today. I decided to ride from my house up north of Searchmont and back. I rode highway 532 all the way to the end. It was an enjoyable ~120 km.
