Tropic of Capricorn

s23 30.019 e15 46.308.

Here's a photo for all the geography nuts out there (What is geographically significant about the Tropic of Capricorn?). Not often do I get the opportunity to stop and take a photo like this. Usually I'm whizzing by in a bus or plane.

This crossing of the T. of Capricorn was in the middle of nowhere in Namibia.

Another amazing BTOG factoid.

On my trip through Africa 2007, I crossed the

Tropic of Cancer: 4 times.

Equator: 4 times.

Tropic of Capricorn: 4 times.

International Dateline: once (ok, it was in fact a round-the-world trip.)

Tell me what line(s) have you crossed lately?
