Rapa Nui

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Arrived on this small dot of land thousands of miles from the nearest continent on tuesday. Blue skies, palm trees and large statues everywhere you turn. Hired bikes today and went up to one of the highest points ok the island, and also has a spectacular crater lake (not sure about the bond villain lair underneath though). Just phone photos again I’m afraid.

Santiago de Chile

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Arrived in Santiago yesterday after a loooong journey. View from hostel terrace below and the inside of buenos aires airport. Been on a Chilean wine tour today. More photos to come when I can plug my camera in somewhere and not just use my phone and the wifi for everything.

The main square of Santiago, The Plaza de Armas at night. Also the view from the hostel´s terrace.
