Journal: Reflecting on Data and Concepts

Thinking about this week's data:
What would you see if you traveled around the world at your latitude? Strap on a pair of "Latitude Shoes" and go for a 24-hour ride! What seasons would you experience? What clothes would you need? Find the photoperiod for one of the favorite places you visit, and for a place on the Daylight map too. How do photoperiods at other places on your latitude line compare to your own?
