Today marks the fourth anniversary of the first time I stepped on and across the equator. (It’s a meaningful moment for someone who likes to get around, so pardon this brief indulgence.)To commemorate the moment, Lisa snapped this shot of me holding a sign she so graciously made to mark the occasion. This is just north of Jama. Ecuador.
More recently, I crossed the earth’s center line in Uganda in late March, just north of Queen Elizabeth National Park in the country’s western edges. And I was wearing the same shirt. It wasn’t planned, I promise.
I can say with a fair bit of confidence that mine is probably the only Paris 2003 World Track & Field Championships shirt that’s been on the equator on two continents. Please, correct me if I’m wrong. 🙂
And for the record, today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 1,236th straight, was snapped on 23 May 2013, at 0 degrees latitude.
