It was great to see the actual point and see ...
... before. There were a couple of boats moored which looked as if they would be used for taking the cars and lorry from the freighter as they had ramps which could be lowered at one of their ends to enable vehicle sot be driven off and up a slip way. Unfortunately we had the same guide so we knew that we were not going to get as much information as we would with someone with a better command of English. Orongo was our first destination. It is a village which is still used ...
