|At the equator|
On the way to the great Thompson falls , we came across a spot Subukia , which is of great geographical importance, as the Equator passes through it. Amazingly , I felt that I am standing at a place where the so called imaginary line divides the globe into two equal halves- Northern and Southern hemispheres. Perhaps anybody can demand to stand at the 'middle of the earth'. The approach road is of picturesque scenic beauty, and perhaps an ideal 'painters paradise'. Travelling from the dust of Nakuru it was really enthralling to watch the changing scenario with coffee, tea plantation and the lush of greenery that fights to get one's attention.
To climb down was an exciting task and more exciting was the way to climb up , which was a great calorie burning task I had ever faced in my whole life. I could see varieties of plants, rare flowers which paved my way all through and soothed my eyesight.
