Google is actively photographing Estonia at the moment. They started last year already but then came winter... You may be surprised to see that the cars are wearing the logo of an Estonian company called Regio. That's because Regio is actually using Google cars to create 3D models of the 2 largest towns in Estonia while the cars are shooting Street View too.

I've seen google street view car in Arad, Romania some time ago... and now I can see myself on the sidewalk

It was a black Opel Astra, but the previous model, not this new one.

The one I saw was exactly like those in your picture (#2,3) and it also had German plates.

What's up with Canadians loving swimming pools? This one is near Montréal, I'm surprised to see so many houses with pools this far north.

I like it! Saint-Louis-du-, the most appropiate town for laugh after.

It's 45°N though, I wouldn't call it too far north. It's on the same latitude as Venice. Sure, the Gulf stream plays a huge roll in overall differences in the climate but at noon the sun is still shining from the same angle and that might be enough to justify a pool.
