Martin is a liar

You can bargain with Martin on the price. He asks more than $50, but I found lodging elsewhere for $35, so he matched that price. He sold me a bottle of used water. I don't think that is right that I was drinking after someone else's germs. I was flying standby because my wife works for the airlines. He told me it would be impossible to fly home and told me there was no point going to the airport. All flights were full all week and that I should stay with him. I did have to stay with him for one extra day because flights were full, but I was the only one that didn't get a seat, so I still was close to getting on and he said it was impossible. The next day, I had to walk to the airport. I feel like Martin lied to me to get me to stay longer and only wanted my money. Martin waits near baggage claim and tries to tke people to his hotel. He crossed over to the check in terminal to ask me about my flight and I said there were 4 people not checked in and I could fly if those people did not check in. He told me he was leaving and I would have to walk to his hotel if I did not come now. I do not think this is good customer service because he just wanted me to cme to his hotel instead of flying out which was the best option for me. He should not be pushy. In do not recommend anyone to stay here or meet with Martin. Most of the other locals on the island are really nice. Martin woke up one day walking around the hotel with only pants that had no elastic and he had to hold them up. It was quite gross considering he had no underwear underneath and no t-shirt on also. He is not a pleasant site to look at.... Just in general Martin looks at everyone like they are idiots.

Easter Island could be the most isolated island more Earth. It is more than 5 hours by airplane from the nearest sign of humanity. As the legend goes, a group of Polynesians were following a star while they were in a canoe and ran into the island. There used to be nearly 18,000 people here and now there are only 6,500.

... class, known as "matatoa". The figure of a half bird and half man was the symbol of the matatoa; the distinct character connected the sacred site of Orongo. The Birdman cult which replaced the moai cult worship was concentrated in Orongo at a ceremonial site called Mata Ngarau. The location is at an elevation of 250 metres (820 ft), on a narrow ridge between the ocean, and the deep crater of Rano Kau volcano. Around Orongo, there are hundreds of petroglyphs carved with ...

... to rent a car and tour the island ourselves instead of using a tour guide.

We traveled outside the hotel area to downtown Hanga Roa and saw some of the active parts of town. They had some native restaurants and gift shops, not much else. They found a way to install an artificial turf soccer field on the island though.

The drive to the east coast took about 10 minutes, once we got there we experienced ...

... else was lying around. Then bedtime was at the very modest hour of 21h00.

I accompanied Jorge on one rainy day to Talca, a very unimpressive little city, where he had admin to sort out. I also spent a morning with him in San Javier where he had to attend to repairs on a client's solar panel. When attempting to leave this particular client's house (the client was not at home) Jorge's car had sunk into the driveway gravel and we were unable to ...

... construction of the moai contributed to a civilization implosion because it resulted in an environmental degradation when extreme deforestation destabilized an already precarious ecosystem. Loss of the large trees to be used as rollers meant that residents were no longer able to build seaworthy vessels, significantly diminishing their fishing abilities. This was further exacerbated by the loss of land birds and the collapse in seabird populations as a potential source ...
