Brazil, columbia, Equador, Kenya are located on the equator. And Egypt is located 30 degrees north longitude and 30 degrees east latitude. But i didn't figure out the difference between latitude and latitude lines.

You're right about the countries. :-)

Latitude lines go around the globe -- east-west -- and are parallel to each other. They measure distance from the Prime Meridian.

Longitude lines go up and down (the long way) -- north-south. They are not parellel to each other, but meet at the Poles. They measure distance from the Equator.
