Why Easter Island is worth the schlep

Me at the aforementioned vineyards
Five mighty moai, sporting the original man-buns. (Turns out these aren’t hats atop their heads, but a traditional top-knot hairstyle.)
A perfect Saturday at Anakena Beach. The locals bring beer & BBQ just off to the left.
No whistles were sounded during the taking of this photo at Ahu Tongariki
Rano Raraku: “the factory” where each moai was carved for centuries. Little known fact: these heads all have bodies!
This beauty is within hiking distance from town, or a scenic drive on the way to Orongo historic site.
Note: all photos taken with my Sony A6000 Mirrorless, 16–50mm lens
