Thoughts about Rapa Nui - Isla de Pascua - Easter Island - Paaseiland

Magical and mysterious.
Friendly and relaxed people.
Perfect food and drink.
Volcanic and dusty.
Stunning Moai.
Unbelievable sunset.
Horses free, wild and in the main street.
Rather expensive, but absolutely worth the money.
Just like paradise.
Excellent residencial.
Tropical flowers.
Discovered by a fellow countryman.
Low-rise buildings, not higher than the palm trees.
Cocks crow very early.
The navel of the world.
Mass with singing in Rapanui language.

    I saw a movie called "Rapa Nui" done in 1980's. So, I thought I would see what the real thing looks like. Your trip and the once in the world sites are fabulous. YOu have a great presentation

    Excellent page. Our recent stay on Rapa Nui was every bit as special as I thought it would be. You obviously found it the same. Leyle
