Just 12 miles north of Quito, the capital of Ecuador, is Ciudad Mitad del Mundo (Middle-of-the-World City). But don’t be fooled by it - this is a tourist-trap complex. The genuine equator and a terrific museum lie outside Mitad del Mundo. There you will find the actual, GPS-calculated, experiment-proven 00 degrees, 00 minutes, 00 seconds latitude.
wow, that's indeed fantastic, I mean the experiments at the ecuator! So many things that happen in the world (flushing toilets) people take for granted without knowing that in other places things are totally different.
