Photographer's Note

Continuing with my plan to show you some other sites around Easter Island...wanting to show you that there's more to this remote destination than just Moai Statues.

There's really only 1 town or city centre on the entire Island, and its called Hanga Roa. It consists of 2 main boat launch sites, one of them seen here in the main photo just off to the right, a soccer pitch, 1 post office, an elementary school, and 1 main street which has the majority of the towns restaurants and stores to purchase your groceries. These grocery stores are very small and have only the essentials - more like a corner store.

I'll add a couple of WS photos, one of which will show you the soccer pitch. The scene here is the main boat launch site (off to the right) and directly infront of me is where locals go for a swim. If you want to just sit and float in the water you'll be to the right of the rocks, if you want to go surfing you'll go out further to the left of the rocks out into the ocean.

Just behind me were locals sunbathing, hanging out with friends, drinking beer. Its a very casual atmosphere on the Island.

Hope you like it
