I have to say it was amazing to actually be on the equator. I always wanted to do the water test to see which way down the water goes. However slightly ill prepared I settled for the egg test.

Along the river and up north around Kota district, the sewage smell is so strong it gives you a headache. I feel sorry for the people that live here, they seem to spend their life stuck in a traffic jam with not much entertainment nor comfort.
