Easter Island(Sailboat delayed..again!)

27 May 2008
Hi from Easter Island (it has the most remote airport on the earth!).

The sailboat has been delayed again. I now must be in Valdivia, Chile on May 31, so I decided to visit Easter Island....4,000 km NW of Santiago, and 4,000 km SE of Tahiti....a 6 hour flight from Santiago...this puts it right in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean.

This is the island with those incredible moais (huge ancient stone statues), that no one can figure out how they were moved from the quarry to positions all over the Island.

Although EI is a part of Chile, the culture resembles more that of French Polynesia (Tahiti, Marquesas, etc.).
