Today I found three Equator signs on one bit of road. I think people just stick them up anywhere for business purposes. However I think I was at the real Equator. I paid 300 shillings (2.20 pounds) to see the water test of the Equator line and to receive a certificate of proof. On the exact line the water did neither turn clock-wise or anti-clock-wise.
I did, in the words of the poet A E Houseman, for one brief time 'wear the turning globe'.
