Ecuador Means Equator In Spanish

Joe T, prolific commenter and traveler, is starting his own travel site called Volette. Right now the blog is up, of which you will find my first contribution about Quito:

Mitad del Mundo is the built-for-tourists attraction about an hour and a half bus ride from the center of Quito. Even though the equator goes through several countries of the world, it goes through just one country whose name in the Spanish language is “equator.” Plus it’s also the only place where you can take your picture next to an old sign held in place by concrete blocks that proves to all your friends and family that you touched both the North and South hemispheres at the same time.

The whole thing, with pictures, can be read here.
