Moai Revelations

The rain had finally stopped and the sun was out. Raphael had already left to explore the island, but we were feeling a bit rough and the ''Gato Negro'' had stained our mouths purple. The children had warned us the previous night that we shouldn't be drinking cheap rubbish like that and it seems...

... in Which We are Entirely

== Surrounded by Water== Our second morning on Easter Island we had learned to be quick, so got up before the school children for breakfast. This time we were able to find food at places next to each other and get a fair amount of meat and cheese. We had been planning to go to the main...

Day 5 - Easter Island

We got in around 1pm after a 5 hour flight from Santiago. Our first Mission? Check out the Moai close to our hotel. It's hard to describe the magic of being next to these statues in the flesh (Stone). Our first Moai was in Ahu Tahai which is a fully restored Moai with the eyes still in tact...
