As an aside, I found this little tidbit:
"The summit of Mt. Everest is the highest point on Earth above sea level, but what point is highest above the center of the Earth? This distinction belongs to the summit of Mt. Cayambe near Cayambe, Ecuador, which, at 18,982 feet, lies almost exactly on the equator. The reason it holds this distinction owes to the Earth's equatorial bulge. Geometry dictates that if you're on Cayambe's summit you're as close to the 'heavenly bodies' as you can get while still standing on Earth."
Harry how about booking a trip like this? :lol)
