Watch how water drains on the equator line.avi [01:55]
This is from a trip to Quito, Ecuador in 2007. The water drains straight down on the equator line, drains clockwise in the Southern hemisphere, and drains counter-clockwise in the northern hemisphere. All within 15 feet.

Ecuador Mission Trip, February 2011 [09:40]
After much work, here it is--my trip to Ecuador I took in February. I did my best to present the ideal balance of experiences--seeing a new culture for the first time as well as ministering to kids. I hope you enjoy this...it means a ton to me that you would watch this. Thank you!

"El Nariz del Diablo" Dawn_smedley's photos around Riobamba, Ecuador [00:52]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Riobamba, Ecuador by TravelPod blogger Dawn_smedley titled "El Nariz del Diablo!" Dawn_smedley's travel blog entry: "Riobamba is basically the start point for the train ride called ´El Nariz del Diablo´ or the Devil's Nose! This was a very cool experience and basically everyone just sits on top of the train! Even though we arrived later than everyone else, in true Team Smedders stylie we managed to bag two of the best seats on the train! Yeah! Even though I nearly got stuck at the top of the ladder trying to get on the train! Nimble as ever! Once you´re on there, you basically rent cushions to stop your bum from going numb and then just sit back and enjoy the ride! To celebrate the experience, we sat and had a beer for breakfast!!! Again the beginning of the train ride was in the shadow of snowcapped volcano Chimborazo and some of the countryside we went through was just stunning! One of the most amusing things about the train ride though was the tourist buses following the train who kept stopping to take photos! Why not just do the train ride! Going to the toilet was abit of a challenge while the train was in motion as you basically had to climb down the side of the carriage and then swing round to get to the toilets! Funnily enough, my bladder control was on top form! It was great watching all the locals going about their daily lives dressed in traditional dress (poncho´s & panama hats!) giving us a quick wave and ...

"Guayaquil - (that's whay-a-kill, canny lad)" Terryback's photos around Guayaquil, Ecuador [00:56]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Guayaquil, Ecuador by TravelPod blogger Terryback titled "Guayaquil - (that's whay-a-kill, canny lad)" Terryback's travel blog entry: "So, Wednesday morning, we're at sea level with Jane still dizzy and wobbly but thankfully not nauseous. We flew to Guayaquil in Ecuador, a place that sounded like it had been discovered by Geordie explorers. The flight, our last on LAN, was on a half-full brand-new Boeing 767, with full entertainment. I started to watch the Golden Compass. I knew the film was two hours long and the flight only one and a half, but I was strangely drawn to it....idiot. I'll have to buy the DVD now. We were met at Guayaquil by our guide William (William, Oliver....they all sound a bit Surrey really. Can't wait to meet Nigel at our next stop). He gave us a quick run down of the city (safe, great river front walk, better than Quito...errr - that's it) then dropped us at the hotel. We were due to meet him the next day for a city tour. We had a long walk that afternoon. The town was really buzzy and typically South American. Manic drivers, taking no prisoners; haughty pedestrians showing no fear and refusing to acknowledge the cars. On every street corner there were old ladies and urchins selling coca cola in plastic cups from 2 litre bottles for 5c. (is that too Dickensian, urchins? Lummee governor, errr, senor, you're a real toff, thankee). Jane points out that there were also lots of smart young men selling ...

"Ecuador, Peru and the Amazon" Randypepper's photos around Iquitos, Peru [02:37]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Iquitos, Peru by TravelPod blogger Randypepper titled "Ecuador, Peru and the Amazon" Randypepper's travel blog entry: "Here's a note on our recent travels as we end the second leg of our tour. We started our Ecuadorian adventure in its capital, Quito. The old town has a pretty square where we got to watch a demonstration urging war against Columbia for its army's attack of FARC guerrillas in Ecuadorian territory. While Quito is just north of the equator, it's in a very high valley so the daytime temperatures seldom go above 22 Centigrade in the winter and it rains most days. A highlight was a visit to the Guayasamin Museum and the Chapel of Humanity which now display the amazing works of Ecuadorian artist, Oswaldo Guayasamin (after his several former wives stopped bickering about where the works were to be displayed). We then flew to the Galapagos islands with our old mates, Frank Archibald, Liz Palatics and their three kids, Joanne, Adrienne and Craig. Had a marvelous week aboard the good ship, Eric, and saw some unusual wildlife. You haven't lived until you've been up close to a boobie! The snorkeling was terrific and included sightings (and sometimes swimming with) sea turtles, sea lions, penguins, manta, eagle and sting rays, octopus, and white-tipped and hammerhead sharks. Some encounters were less than friendly: Craig got a nasty sting from a jelly fish and Adrienne was bitten by a sea lion. At other times ...
