A man discovers that his wife is cheating on him thanks to a photo found on Google Maps
Proverbs abound when it comes to secrets and lies. From the classic "lies have short legs" we arrive at the less known but no less effective "only that which you do not do, you do not know".

Over the years, the evolution and diffusion of technology has definitely changed things, literally rewriting the traditional concept of privacy.
A woman living in the city of Lima, Peru, experienced firsthand how difficult it is today not to let someone know something, especially when it comes to your husband. The latter, browsing the internet, discovered that his wife was cheating on him. Evidence of the clandestine affair was in a photo immortalized on Street View by the famous Google Car. In the image you can see a couple, with him romantically resting his head on her lap.
Although the faces were obscured, the betrayed husband recognized the silhouette of his partner and her clothes. The shot dates back to 2013 and was taken at a place called Puente de los Suspiros de Barranco.
