From summer into winterSeptember 9, 2019 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C
Today we crossed the equator at "Mitad del mundo " in Ecuador. This little monument is where the northern and southern hemisphere connects .And with crossing the equator we are moving from summer into winter. While camping at a beautiful lake on 3700 meters, we prepared ourselves with some "Gluehwein" , the hot mold wine thats typical for the german winter season where we grew up.
