There are amazing tricks that can be done if you are exactly on the equator. Unfortunately in Quito, if you go to the large monument and line that tourists are directed to you are a few degrees off the actual waypoints. Just on the outskirts of the monument is a small museum that houses a cool equator tour . It’s run down and it takes the intrepid soul to leave the bus tour to venture off and find it while others pose at the sign and landmark.
But when you do you’ll find a place where fun things happen! Check out this video of one of the cool Equator tricks!
