Crossing the Equator

This is La Mitad Del Mundo. It may be touristy and a bit hoaky, but I am standing with one foot in each hemisphere. Actually with current GPS technology it turns out to be 240 meters from the actual equator, but since I walked up and down the walkway, at some point I was at the actual, carefully measured spot.

Is this my first crossing? NO. Twenty-five years ago Lin and I crossed the equator on the Mahakkan River in Indonesia. That was my first crossing. Lin's first crossing was during his Destroyer duty in the Pacific.

The stop at La Mitad del Mundo was on our way to the rainforest at Mindo.
