20090316 Rapa Nui, Day 2

Rain. All day.

In the afternoon, we took a van to the end of the runway, Vinapu, which contains a few well constructed Moai bases. Then (past the fuel depot nearly off the end of the runway) to the peak of Rano Kau. 1600m diameter, 200m deep?

After dinner, a small show of 'authentic' Rapa Nui music and dance. I (and John) stayed around fiddling with pictures and blogging (resp.) by which time the sky cleared, and....NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHS!

Rain, rain, go away. Look closely at the dots on the hill. They're horses and cows.

What else do you do when it's raining? Take pictures of rain.
