"La Mitad del Mundo" San Antonio by MalenaN

Where is the equator?
Measurements with GPS have shown that it is not where the painted yellow line at La Mitad del Mundo is, but a few hundred metres away. I had my picture taken here anyway, with one foot on each side of the line (said to be the north and south hemisphere). I also had my picture taken at the painted equator line at Museo de Sitio Intiñan, but is the equator there or maybe at Catequilla, an old indigenous site on a nearby hill.

    We will come here for sure, but I hope we also make it to the possibly real equator at Museo de Sitio Intiñan - the experiments sound fun, even if they may be fake!

      Both places are worth visiting, and they are within walking distance from each other.

    So, you were "divided" into two pieces: One remained in the north, one in the south.., lol!

    Another very intersting page on this part of the World. I can't get over the magnificent scenery over here. Your meal looked very filling, and cheap too!

    Now I know where the middle of the world is located! And you were lucky to see the painted equator line. Thank you Malena for sharing!

    It?s good that you have a choice of two equators and two middles of the world. Maybe the real middle really is around there somewhere. This looks like a nice place to visit, in any case.
