Quito Ecuador Middle of the World Tour (Pululahua Volcano, Mitad del Mundo)

Since I was a kid, I always wanted to see visual proof with my own eyes that water rotates the opposite direction in the Southern Hemisphere compared to the Northern Hemisphere. Now I have that proof, and I filmed it!

In this video, we went to the Pululahua Volcano Geobotanical Reserve located about 30 minutes north of Quito, Ecuador.

Then we went to the official Mitad del Mundo (Middle of the Earth) Monument to see where French explorers placed the equator several hundred years ago.

Then we went to the scientific equator as measured by GPS and the rotating water test at Museo Intiñan, which is located 240 meters northwest of the internationally famous monument.

Here’s the link to our TeleferiQo Cable Car video.

Hola todos! Welcome to my author bio page! Let's see. Where to begin... I grew up in the country on a lake outside a small Kansas farm town. As soon as I could, I got the hell outta there! Since then, I've lived and/or worked in Kansas City, Washington D.C., Denver, San Francisco, and Ecuador. I started and sold a dotcom, wrote a book about it, started a YouTube channel, and now I write a lot. Amelia and I have embraced the Unconventional Life and we want to help you do it, too!
