Also apparently the shortest closed loop path (in the Traveling Salesman Problem sense) through some 16189 places around the world. Nice coding too!

Really, "other equatorial countries"?

Here you go: "other equatorial countries" (scroll right down to the end).

Equatorial in this context means that day and night are very nearly equal to each other throughout the year. It doesn't necessarily imply an equatorial climate or the presence of rain forests.
