Take A Virtual Tour Of Brazil's Iconic Painted Streets Celebrating The World Cup

The World Cup begins Thursday, and Google has celebrated this week by adding a link to its homepage that lets you virtually tour the painted streets of Brazil.

It’s not just the streets that are painted; there’s also some beautiful photos of streamers, wall murals featuring famous footballers, and even some colourful graffiti.
