On the Google homepage there is a link where you can use street view to tour the streets of Brazil. This is an awesome idea by Google. It may be because the last World Cup was four years ago, but I do not remember the same amount of hype surrounding previous World Cups. It probably helps that this World Cup is in a much closer time zone but I feel as if the growth of soccer in this country has also greatly contributed to the increased coverage and marketing. Whatever it is though, I’m glad it happened, because this has been a real treat.
