Today's post, part II.
Macapa has two interesting things in it, aside from general city exploration. The first of these is a very large old French fort. I took photos of that. The second is a large obelisk and concrete line that are right on the equator. I took photos of that too. Macapa straddles the equator, and the Monumento do Marco Zero is something I had very much been looking forward to seeing. I'm quite pleased with myself, as today I stood with one foot in the northern hemisphere and one in the southern hemisphere. I did not set up two toilets side by side to see if the water swirled in opposite directions when flushed, but I did think myself clever for walking from winter into summer. :) Of course, it's hot at the equator, so they both pretty much felt the same to me. Short blog post, more pics.
