As Robert drives out of Entebbe, I fall asleep almost immediately – we didn’t get a great deal of sleep on the plane. I wake up just in time for our arrival at the Equator, where we are given a demonstration of how the water runs clockwise through the plug hole in the northern hemisphere, anti-clockwise in the southern hemisphere and straight down on the equator! I have seen this done before, but am still amazed at how you don’t even have to go more than a few yards away from the equator for it to work.
The Equator - earth's tummy band - runs right through Uganda, leaving some of the country in the northern hemisphere and the rest in the southern hemisphere.
Apparently, your weigh 3% lighter on the equator, I don’t know why. We have our photographs taken under the “Equator Arch”, with one leg in each hemisphere.
