I know sailors have a tradition when they cross the date line. Is there a tradition when you cross the Equator...do they throw you over a cliff! That could hurt at almost 6400 ft! :-)It also occurred to me that this sign could use a little work...
Great capture! So that's the equator, huh! That sign looks as though its been around for a while! Maybe a face lift???? Wonderful travel post as always, JM!Sylvia
The sign also says; This is the hottest place on Earth!
That sign do need some fixing ! The Equator, it is only man's definition of an imaginery line that divides the northern half of the planet from the southern half.
Oh, this is so cool! I was there! I loved watching the demonstration of how the rotation of water changes from 10 paces to either side of this sign!Wish my Africa pics were digital.Have a fabulous day!Debbie's Travels
I've got a similar photo taken in France in the Loire Valley with the Longitude 0 (Greenwich).I love this sort of shot!
Very characteristic photo, photo suvenir !!!!Greetings
JM, this is way sooooo cool! <3
Hey this is neat. A world cut in halves. MB
a symbolic line
very nice shot.i played today too at http://ewok1993.wordpress.com
that is a wide equator sign.
Very cool! Did you straddle the equator to be in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres at the same time? I would have!
I would love to be there and take that picture! One of those "I've been there" shots!
I think we know it's an imaginary line, but it helps us in geography.
Jm,how fun to be able to be there and have this fantastic photo....Barb
Wow! Now that's a sign not too many places can claim! And it looks as if it has weathered a few storms too!
Great sign... and clever question about straddling the equator from EG.
Wow. I've never been to the equator and probably never will, but I like this sign!
Very cool (although probably HOT!). I love demarcation signs like this.
