Well actually it was a brilliant Friday and thanks to Steve our travelling friend who provided me with the idea for this title. Oh by the way, Saturday was just as fantastic. We arrived on Easter Island or Rapa Nui, as it is known locally, yesterday after a 5 hour flight from Chile. The airport is tiny and our Boeing 767 dwarfed it. Even stranger our hotel was literally across the street but not a problem as there are a maximum of two flights ...
I had another really good day on the island today. I picked up my rental car from Insular Rentals, and they were awesome. The woman let me come at 8:30am instead of their normal 9am opening time. We went through the paperwork and I got the car at 8:45am and hit the road. I really wanted to get to the quarry (Rano Raraku) when it opened at 9am, but I didn’t get there until 9:15am.

The island thins out so much that we could see ocean on both sides! It happened to be a beautiful day once again when we did this small hike, which ...
... area behind the low barrier. At the tour end we were delivered back to our hotel where we went straight to the restaurant for hot drinks. Then back to our room to start packing as we were to leave the following morning. We had dinner in the hotel. The food wasn't too bad there and other guests were eating there as well. The sunset over the ocean was lovely. They still hadn't unloaded the freighter but we had earlier seen some of the crew come off in a tender, perhaps to eat in Hanga ...
