Easter Island Day 2

Day 2 we hiked the oldest peak on the island which is about 1200 feet above sea level. This was much steeper than yesterday and quite a workout on the buttisimo. Then we went down the other side of the mountain to end at Ahu Tongariki, the largest Moai site both in terms of size and number (15 Moai on a massive platform).

In the afternoon we were pooped and took a siesta before heading back down to the town for more of the festival. There was a lot of music this time and even though we couldn't understand the words it was still very good. One of the musicians was Enrique Icka, who has a great reggae sound. The next day his CD was playing in the van and I was able borrow it and rip it to my computer.
