Greetings from Mitad del Mundo


Mitad del Mundo, that's Middle of the World (the Equator) to the layperson. Anyways, we took a little trip here last Sunday and it was quite nice. They had experiments here and taught us about the culture of the ancient people that lived in the area. One interesting experiment consisted of draining a container of water on the equator and then a few feet south and then north of it. Right on the equator, the water, when drained would go straight down. South of the equator, the swirl of the draining water would go one way and the north, the opposite way (I don't remember which one was which.)
