Equator
 
Equator -
For 18 days I had the pleasure of having my father here with me, including for Christmas!
I had promised him to show him around in Ecuador and this picture shows our first stop: the middle of the world. Or so they say. I like to think there are many middles of the world, this one just happens to be easily accesible. Every day, dozens of tourists flock to this place to stand with one leg on each hemisphere. In the wrong place! This massive monument was erected after he french had, a while ago, calculated that this was the equator. Later GPS proved that it is actually around the corner.
