Mitad Del Mundo

So back in the day when this monument was built they didn´t have GPS, so its not exactly on the Equator…but they had the right idea. 0°0′0 is really 300m north. After 3 bus rides from Tumbaco, which is 30 minutes outside of Quito, we finally made it there. Estimated travel time to get there: 2 hours.

Can you see me?  I´m right in the middle
