On the Equator

On the Equator in 4 days this shadow will move to the center of the line – which aligns with the mountains in the distance. This is the only place on the planet where there are mountains to mark the seasons. the PRE Incans put sun dials in locations around this spot that mark this important calendar event – Quito is located on one of the triangulations. Quite amazing to experience this place and the description/understanding at the new Quitsato monument!
