      Chili - Rapa Nui (Ile de Paques)

      January 1, 2020 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

      En cette nouvelle Année (bonne année a tous 🥳), nous terminons notre tournée Polynesienne avec l'ile de Paques (Rapa Nui dans le texte).
      L une des iles les plus isolées du monde (il n'y a pas d'archipel), c'est un etrange mélange. Le centre fait clairement penser a l'Irlande avec son herbe grasse, ses barrieres de pierre noire et son betail, mais les cotes sont plantées de bananiers, avocatiers, cocotiers et ananas. De petits crateres (c'est une ile volcanique) apparaissent ça et là. Le tout est bordé d'une mer de corail turquoise et l'on y parle polynesien et espagnol ! En ajoutant le decalage horaire il y a de quoi etre perdu !
      Et il y a ces statuts mythiques, les Moais. Ils ont été construits par les polynésiens venus de Nouvelle Zelande et de Tahiti entre le 12e et le 15e siecle avant l'arrivée des Chiliens. On sait comment ils ont ete taillés mais leur assemblage et la mise en place reste un mystere.

      That was the easter island.

      August 24, 2023 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

      Today first in English and very first an excuse from me for my mishandling the language .
      There are many faults and the self correction brings out silly things. Sorry, it will not change. Truus gives me hell about this, I get used to it.

      Now you have to know about Easter Island:

      Size Easter island 160 km2
      Size town of Toronto 630 km2

      In former times only women could own land!!

      Easter island was discover by a Dutch sailor 17hundert and something on Easter Sunday
      That is why the name

      How it got to Chile?
      It was no one’s land till 1870, the the grand Republik France was showing interest to invade.
      The empire was afraid to loose interest in the pacific and told their alliac Chile to take care about this, and the did.

      Till 2002 only origins could Buy land, now it is allowed to Chilean citizen

      We were wondering
      About the long and excellent done runway at the airport.
      It was done by the nasa as and emergency landing strip for a space shuttle

      Easter island is rich in ….
      Potholes in the roads, we didn’t count them, it must be a million!
      Driving here is a good training for slalom skiing
      The only good road on the island was built by the US from the Harbour to the airport for transportation of material.

      Except the wonderful and mysterious Stone figures is not much to see an do, we had wonderful days and will leave tomorrow.
      Some fotos of the day and from dinner at sunset!

      Now in German:

      No translation, who doesn’t understand shall try the translation program or start learning English

      Good night , here 9 pm on Thursday

      Ahu Tahai

      December 6, 2023 in Chile ⋅ 🌬 68 °F

      Last stop of the day. It's not like I didn't believe Bruno when he said the hats were actually hair, like a top knot, but he sure (unintentionally) showed me he was right. I didn't get to walk over to the other side, it was a quicker stop than I expected but it's supposed to be close to my hotel. In fact, this was the first suggestion of the hotel owner. I was just a little tired and went around too quickly haha.Read more
