FM marketplace is becoming one of our favourite sources for pretty cottage pieces. A pair of these delicate little chairs will be finding a home in our kids’ bunk room very soon. #cordialhouse#cordialcottage
Unlike Quito of Ecuador which capitalise its location to its fullest whereby the Equator of the Earth runs across it, Indonesia, the only country in the world that has the Equator runs across its lands several times, seems not taking this advantage to make any of them a tourist spot.
Apart from the Equator Monument which to me a run down monument and its surrounding areas dull and not attractive, this simple elevated Equator signage erected at the much happening and more centrally located Kapuas Waterfront is another 'landmark' that reminds the tourists that this town is exactly underneath the Equator. The visible electric cable line connecting to it is nevertheless an eye sore to photographers.
By the way the words shown on this iconic landmark is not 'equator' but 'evenaar' which is a Dutch word for Equator. I am curious actually why not the word 'Khatulistiwa' which is equator in Bahasa Indonesia been used.
