Video Diary – Day 26

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

Video Diary – Day 25

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.
