The point farthest from the Earth’s center is the summit of Chimborazo, in Ecuador, at 6,268 m (20,564 ft). This is due to the Earth being an oblate spheroid rather than a perfect sphere. An oblate spheroid is very much like a sphere except it is wider at the equator and narrower between the poles. This means that Chimborazo, which is near the equator, is farther away from the center of the Earth than is the peak of Mount Everest. The summit of Mount Everest is 2,168 m (7,113 ft) shorter at 6,382.3 km (3,965.8 mi) from Earth’s center. Peru’s Huascarán contends closely with Chimborazo, the difference in the mountains’ heights being 23 m (75 ft)

Saxifraga oppositifolia, the purple saxifrage or purple mountain saxifrage, is a species of edible plant that is very common all over the high Arctic and also some high mountainous areas further south, including northern Britain, the Alps and the Rocky Mountains.

The Orinoco Delta was first colonized by the humans back in Medium Neolithic. 8.000 years ago the Warao, one of the last native south american people, have taken shelter inside its mangrove swamp labyrinth. Deep in the swamps it is still possible to make out a world ruled by spirists where small isolated native communities struggle so survive. The existance of ancient animistic rites and the acceptance of transgender people among the warao society could be the last remains of those old pre-Columbian traditions, never photographied before.
