When I set out on this adventure I really never thought about what I would be accomplishing. But it really hit me when I hit the middle of the world.
Who would have thought that one day I would be standing on the equatorial line that separates the two hemispheres.
I did not realize it until I left the equator and started riding again that without any planning I ironically hit the equator ( Feb 1, 2013) exactly eight months to the date that I left home. Who would have thought that in 8 months I would have driven 13 countries, put on more than 22,000 km and be standing at the equator.
My first time ever in the Southern Hemisphere.
Now excuse me while I go flush a toilet to see which way the water flows down the drain.
