We just arrived tonight for our two night stay, but found the our room to be well appointed and with a nice view of the ocean. The facility has an eco- friendly design, and we were told they just mowed the grass on our roof. :-) Our group just had cocktails and a nice buffet dinner in the main dining room. The staff was very friendly and courteous. I met the new General Manager who said to contact him personally if there was anything we needed.

I met a tall young woman named Christina from the US who is married to a Rapanui. Obviously fluent in English, she filled me in on some of the issues, and introduced me to Ricardo Hito, who seemed to be in charge of the roadblock on the main access road to the most important sacred sites on Rapa Nui. He is a Rapanui who grew up here.

... study the moais. Paul actually was on one of the first to arrive by plane on the island. He detailed his interesting life story. He came to Easter Island in the 60's after graduating from college. He was following William Mulloy, a renowned archaeologist.
