There is power in the Moai - mana it is called - and power in the sea. Alone out there, more than 2000 miles from the Chilean coast and 1200 miles to the nearest neighbor, you feel the need for protection that the Moai gave to the islanders.
I have been here 3 nights, little time  to dwell in the spirit of a place. But Easter Island is so magnetic, so restful and other-worldly, that I would say it is well worth making a trip solely for this visit or as a part of any Chile adventure.
Dressing up for the banana trunk cresta run to which the whole island turned out in the drizzle. Such fun!
This morning was another memorable moment. If you look at the Moai statue which is second from the left, he has a travel story. In 1969 my father-in-law, Lars Lindblad, brought his head back to New York on the Lindblad Explorer and set it atop a pedestal that matched his height on Park Avenue. The objective was to bring attention to Easter Island, to encourage tourism and interest and fundraising to restore and protect these magnificent statues. I met last night with Patricia Vargas, the renowned anthropologist and archaeologist, who remembers the time well and who has spent her years here on Rapa Nui doing just that alongside her husband, Claudio Cristino.
