Across the equator in Ecuador
I’ve been crossing the equator several times before, but I’ve never actually stood on it until now! Of course it’s big business here, in Spanish even the word “ecuador” means “equator”.
However, it would appear that the painted yellow line happily straddled by tourists is actually off by a few hundred meters. The fact was easily proved in the modern age of the GPS. I found the real line, painted in red, hidden away to the north of the official monument.
But don’t tell anyone, it’s a secret.
