Google launched Australia street view in early August, I thought New Zealand would be the next country. Obviously, I am a bad predictor, just need a little bit more patience.......

Street View Spain has already gone live with four cities. I'm a little disappointed that the coverage is fairly restricted to the cities themselves without including much of the outlying areas, as was done with France. On the other hand, very nice resolution of the few pictures I've looked at in Madrid and Barcelona! I can't wait to get off work so I can start my virtual tour.
