The World is big enough

“Almost everything you do will seem insignificant, but it is important that you do it” (Mahatma Ghandi)

!Quito, todavía estoy aquí!


Welcome again to my video blog edition number 5! Still in Quito and still doing great! Just the fact that I’m without water since this morning for whatever reason. So no shower in the morning, which actually saves a lot of time 😉 !!! Thank god, I have some bottles of water in the fridge so at least brushing the teeth and coffee in the morning is not yet a problem! Hope, that can be fixed tomorrow!!!

Now some additional information to this weeks video: First of all, sorry for the quality of the video, guess I  changed something in the camera-setting which was not a good idea. So I pressed the reset all button this morning, the next video should be again in the good quality!

For all not Germans – the beginning of the video is based on a very famous german Kids-TV-Program, therefore I did that in german. But all information is covered in the video later on.

The place of the REAL equator is in a museum called “Inti ñan” – There’s no information at the official “Mitad del Mundo” but it’s just a 5 minute walk from there. Ask for it, everybody at “Mitad del Mundo” knows that place!

There is no videos of “La Mariscal” at night, because strolling around at night is not too safe, but especially with a video camera you’re an obvious target. So it’s better not to challenge that!

Finally – the sunset at the end of the video is taken from my desk at the place I’m currently staying at. Every day a bit different but always beautiful and a nice distraction while doing homework!


Yours, Carsten

  1. Totally cool. Great stuff with the water demonstration and those people on top of the mountain were really hilarious! Great to see you’re having fun. Keep safe!

  2. Yep, the couple from Quito were really great. We ran again into each other at the Cable Car station and had a chat!

  3. Hallo Carsten,

    da is ja mords was geboten bei Dir! Und Kultur gratis, wo bekommt man das heute noch als user. Supi. Woher nimmst Du die Zeit und vor allem das know how für die Filme. Und das alles so nebenbei. Wenn ichs richtig verstanden habe, machst Du Spanischkurs und nebenbei sightseeing. Wie lang bleibst Du noch in Quito?
    Waren am samstag auf der Wiesn, ohne MC Müller aber Stefan hatte mindesten so einen Rausch wie damals. Ansonstn alles beim ALten, Dir viel Spass und bleib nur abends nach Einbruch der Dämemrung zu Hause – viel zu gefäääääääääährlich

    Freu mich auf Neues aus Quito


  4. Großartig!! Du wirst immer besser – der Aufmacher mit der Maus ist wunderbar, ich war richtig neugierig, was Du da alles erlebt hast 🙂 Machst einen sehr entspannten Eindruck, obwohl Du zur Schule gehst und “Hausaufgaben” aufkriegst… Warst Du in der Disko?? lg + bussi!!!!

  5. Just Good stuff as always 🙂

  6. This water thing isn’t true, isn’t it???

    Wie weit hat die das Becken versetzt?
    Ich kann das nicht glauben…

    • Indeed it’s true! The water thing is real and no fake!!! The sink was just moved one or two meters north and south of the equator! So this was not made up, I kept the videos as is! But you’re right, it is definitely fascinating!!!
