14-Oct-2013 -- Era una opción en este viaje a ECUADOR. Había leído al visitante anterior a mi, y solo creí que llegaría a 600 mts de la "0 79".

Nuestra suerte cambió cuando al alquilar el auto en Quito, no tenían el que yo había reservado y en compensación me dieron una Ranger 4 x 4 por el mismo precio. Era una señal.

Cuando llegamos al meridiano 79, sorpresa, un sendero solo apto para 4 x 4 nos arrimó a 120 mts del punto que en unos minutos recorrí a pie y conseguí los ceros tan buscados.

Al volver a la ruta, nos cruzamos con el propietario del cafetal donde están los ceros y en pocos minutos hablábamos como viejos conocidos. No me di cuenta de pedirle sus datos para agradecerle, pero le di la información de ésta página. Espero contactarlo.

Ecuador es precioso. Es mi mejor confluencia.

14-Oct-2013 -- It was a choice on this trip to ECUADOR. I had read the previous visitor to me, and just thought that it would reach 600 mts from the "0 79".

Our luck changed when renting the car in Quito, they didn't give me the one which I had reserved and I received a Ranger 4 x 4 for the same price. It was a sign.

When we arrived at the meridian 79, surprise, a single path suitable for 4 x 4, we pulled 120 meters from the point so that in a few minutes I hiked and got the so wanted zeros.

Returning to the road, we came across the owner of the coffee plantation where the CP is located and in a few minutes we talked about like old acquaintances. I didn't realise to ask about information to thank him, but I gave him the information of this page. I hope for contact.

Ecuador is beautiful. It is my best confluence.
