Easter Island Moai Day 1

Finally got to Easter Island this afternoon after missing our flight yesterday. We are staying close to Hanga Roa the main town & there are some of the Moai within walking distance.

These are the carved figures the island is so famous for...they vary in size from 2m to 10m tall standing with their backs to the Pacific Ocean. Some of the Moai have been restored while others are quite eroded.

We have a tour tomorrow afternoon so hope to learn more about these amazing figures.
