Day 26 – Mum’s Roses
Glasgow sits 55°51′N (North of the equator) and 4°16′W (West of Greenwich) according to the imaginary lines encircling the globe that humans have been using for centuries to find our way around.
The Prime Meridian (0° E/W) can be seen at Greenwich observatory.
The Anti-meridian (180° E/W) can be seen on the Fijian islands of Vanua Levu, Rabi and Taveuni.
London sits 51°30′N
If you asked me where was the furthest North I’ve ever lived I would have said Canada’s Frozen North, Fort McMiddle-of-Nowhere-Murray (56°44′N). With 7 months of snow per year it felt like the North Pole to me.
Similarly I would have said Brunei (4°53′N) was the closest to the Equator because of its incessant heat and lush rainforests.
I would have been wrong on both counts.
WESTERNMOST: Fort McMurray sits 56°44′N, 111°23′W
NORTHERNMOST: Aberdeen sits 57°09′N, 2°07′W
FYI: London sits 51°30′N, 0°08′W
EASTERNMOST: Brunei sits 4°53′N, 114°57′E
SOUTHERNMOST: Kuala Lumpur sits 3°09′N, 101°42′E
Day 25 – Stik
Stik is a London artist who created Stik using only 6 lines and 2 dots. Stik speaks to people from all walks of life because social problems are human problems. I first met Stik just after we arrived in London. There was a massive Past, Present & Future looking 30m-high mural on the gable end of the building next to our flat. I’ve spotted him around London quite a few times over the past year. I love Stik.

Day 23/30 – The Secret Language of Feelings.
Day 22 – Twenty Two
