“Have you noticed that your little square blocks on the sectional are so nice and neatly organized, being the same size all the time? Well, straight lines which run from pole to pole (North to South - South to North) are called lines of longitude or meridians. These meridians are then divided evenly into intersecting lines of latitude, or parallels. They are called parallels because they do not converge at any point, but always run parallel to one another. Just for your information, you are now flying in the area between 122 and 123 degrees longitude and right up close to the 38th parallel.”
