Photographer's Note

Sorry for the lack of postings this past week, I've been a bit busier than usual.

Continuing with my little mini theme of showing the landscapes and daily life of Easter Island, I'll show you this photo and 2 more in the WS.

This gem of a view is literally just 5 min from the Airport landing strip :)

The Airport was only 5 min away (in a different direction) from the town center as well - if we had known that we could have walked! But the family we were staying with make a point to pick you up and greet you as you land! :)

There is a 'ring road' that you can drive, taking you around the Island, but not the entire Island. There are parts of it that are paved, parts of it that are flat dirt like you see here, and parts that are totally full of large large large pot holes which give you a severe headache and nausea! Guess you could say the road is a mixture of everything.

Thats why you need a jeep to get around. Renting a jeep is about $70 a day, well worth it! We rented ours for about 3 or 4 days. There's only 1 gas station for the entire Island, so sometimes you'll find a long lineup :)

I'd love to use the "Map View" to show you were this is on the Island, but it hasn't been working lately on TE, hopefully it'll be corrected soon.

Thanks for looking, and enjoy the other landscape views in the WS. Cheers
