Equator in Ecuador

Straddling the equator.

Native weaver. He was a happy soul and spoke a small amount of English.

Boiling an egg on the equator, using sun power!

I´m in the North and Dad is in the South.

Dad trying to balance an egg, supposedly this is easier on the equator.

On the equator. Lots of zero´s.

Our next stop was the equator, Mitad del Mundo, or middle of the earth. We were short of time here but had the quick 20 minute tour and it was very interesting. We are going to return and get some better pictures and a video of the water draining. It swirles in different directions depending on if it is north or south of the equator. The demonstrations were interesting and fun, and we got to stand in both hemispheres at the same time.

so did dad get the egg to stand on end? What fun! I'll add that to the list of places to go someday!

Hate to say it, but I am jelous of your adventures. I'm sure there is a lot of work involved too, but work is always more fun when you are doing it for someone else. You are doing a great job with the blog.-Heather
