Interesting fact about being at the equator in Ecuador – due to altitude, it’s not hot and steamy the way you imagine the equator to be, but cool and typically dry.  During our visit?  TORRENTIAL RAIN! 

More later on my “drainage” experiments – i’m collecting data from all sources.  In the process, i have learned another interesting fact – it’s very difficult to photograph water in a sink or toilet bowl.  Experiments with additives continue…

i’m. such. a. geek.


Off to Galapagos for 3 days – do not expect internet connectivity, so will pop back in on the other side!
