Of course Google also made sure that specific Peruvian landmarks and locations got extra coverage, whenever and wherever there was something notable going on. They've done 360-degree galleries for over 15,000 famous sites across the globe, simultaneously managing to impress us and to heighten our ever-increasing fears that some day soon people will substitute Google Maps for human being travel.
Some of the more picturesque and notable locations mapped this time around, which we're stealing from PC Mag: the Llanganuco Orconcocha lakes, the El Parque de las Leyendas zoo, and the Chan Chan architectural site. That last one is spooky enough that we highly recommend you click through.
Street Maps also expanded coverage of Chile, for what it's worth. The news seems kind of anti-climactic, but Google's releases made a point of emphasizing it, so there you go.
