I couldn’t wait to get to Easter Island, one of the highlights of the trip.
The island is located in the Pacific Ocean, quite far from the coast of Chile, approx. 3,500 km.
Although it belongs to Chile, it has an autonomous status and its inhabitants are Polynesians, being the eastern extremity of Polynesia.
I wonder how those people would have arrived on such a vast territory spread across the entire Pacific Ocean.
Btw, the photo on the Home page is not mine, is a photo taken by Attila Munzlinger.
