-AGICAL ISLAND Barbara Wood and daughter eschew tourist guides and discover Easter Island on their own By Barbara Wood Special to the Almanac

ur goal was to see the sun rise behind the row of 15 massive stone busts at Ahu Tongariki on Easter Island, but as we jolted along potholed dirt roads toward our destination in a small rented SUV driven by an exuberant Israeli who seemed to know where he was going, it looked like we Barbara Wood wouldn’t make it. The clouds were coloring in the east and we had left 15 minutes later than planned, and, to make things worse, this was our only chance as my daughter and I were leaving the island the next day. Finally we arrived at our destination, squeezed ourselves out of the vehicle and rushed, cameras in hand,

to join about 20 others with the same goal. We had made it. For the next 20 minutes it was photographers’ heaven as we watched the clouds take on flamboyant colors that Photos by Barbara Wood a set designer might chose as the perTop picture: This sight of the sun rising over Ahu Tongarik, the largest fect backdrop to the mysterious moai, group of restored moai statues on Easter Island, was almost missed stone statues weighing an average of by Barbara Wood and her daughter.

AN is the only airline that flies to Easter Island, either from Santiago, Chile (daily), or Lima, Peru (on Sundays and Wednesdays), or Tahati (once a week). We found that flights from Lima were only one-third the price of flights from Santiago. The plane flight from Lima was 4-1/2 hours. (www.lan.com) A good source of information about Easter Island is the website (easterisland.southpacific. org), which contains excerpts from “Moon Handbooks South Pacific” by David Stanley.

The quarry of Rano Raraku contains hundreds of moai statues in all stages of completion, from those just beginning to be chiseled from the rock face to others seemingly abandoned on their way to be displayed.

ing at the most amazing spot on this magical island — the quarry called Rano Raraku, where 397 moai, in various stages of completion were abandoned. Some of the statues in the quarry were just beginning to be worked; others appear to be on their way out of the quarry to a final destination. The quarry highlights the mystery of Easter Island. Why was work on the statues abandoned?

How were they moved from one part of the island to another and what purpose did they serve? Not knowing the answers makes Easter Island all the more tantalizing a destination. A

made by water and vegetation on the bottom, and, where ocean waves have eaten away a halfmoon opening on one side, a tantalizing glimpse of the ocean beyond. Beyond the crater is a small museum and the remains of the civilization that existed on the island when it was discovered by outsiders. The so-called Birdman culture existed, according to the island museum, between 1680 and 1864, when the first missionaries arrived. During that time, warring clans toppled most of the moai, which had been erected between 800 and 1680 AD, when Rapa Nui culture was at its peak. On our second day we took a longer hike, and explored caves, moai that had been restored over the years, moai still toppled to the ground, and the remains of the sacred platforms on which the moai had been erected. We shared our walk, even in town, with horses and dogs — which seem to roam, and reproduce, at will — and spent much of the hike in sight of an ocean so blue that I kept removing my sunglasses to make sure I was seeing the true color. Many of the archeological wonders were not marked or explained, which made the walk a constant process of discovery, and a bit more of an adventure. By the third day, footsore, and with the island’s main attractions too far away to reach by hiking, we took up the offer of a young couple staying in our guest house to share their rental vehicle. He was from Israel and she from Sweden and it was their plan to visit the largest group of moai on the island at sunrise. The four of us followed that up with a visit to one of the two white-sand beaches on the island, complete with another group of moai, stops to see more toppled moai, more caves, and some petroglyphs, before arriv-

Easter Island is literally in the middle of nowhere, in the South Pacific, with the closest inhabited island being Pitcairn, 1,242 miles to the west. Easter Island is technically a part of Chile, which is 2,300 miles to the east.

Lodging choices range from camping for $14 per night (mihinoa.com/es_english. php) to the upscale Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa (hangaroa. cl) with rooms starting at more than $1,000 per night. Our hostal (which is a Spanish word for guest house and not the same as a youth hostel), the Apina Tupuna, was $56 a night for a double room with basic amenities and breakfast (hostalapinatupuna. com). Food on the island is expensive, but our guesthouse allowed guests to use its kitchen to cook food purchased in town. Recommended reading: “Easter Island” by Jennifer Vanderbes, a fictional account

of two female scientists who visit Easter Island a century apart; and Jared Diamond’s nonfiction “Collapse,” which, in several chapters, examines possible reasons for the collapse of the society that built the moai on Easter Island. Tour guides: Arrange as soon as you arrive on the island if your visit is short. By the time we tried to arrange a tour with a recommended guide, it was not possible to visit the part of the island we had not yet seen. Ancestral Tour (rapanuiancestraltour. cl) was highly recommended to us. Horseback tours, walking tours and bicycle tours are also available. A
