    In 2008 we stopped off here on our way from Australia to the Galapagos.We enjoyed our stay at the Taur'aa hotel.Of course we all think of the moai which are impressive.

    There is to me a rugged beauty to the place.This is at the harbour.But pick the strong and silent one-

    And there is always something happening-

    And the CBD-

    These photos are great. I enjoyed my trip there, and these brought me nice memories, as they did for kiwi.
