8:35 AM, boarding for Easter Island.
Let's get ready to get in line.
I finally arrived on Easter Island.
Yeah, so beautiful.
Good morning, first place for today's adventure.
What's the name, again? Vaihu.
Let's check it out.
The Moai were facing inland, because they were facing to the village.
In other words, to protect the village.
It's raining so hard.
When the wind blows, it gives me the shivers.
Up and down the hills there are big, small, tall, short, all kinds of Moai.
It's so cool here.
Volcanic tuft, which is a mixture of volcanic ash and volcanic sand.
Only found here in Ranu Raraku, the quarry.
The first one, the second one.
And here is the third one.
The Moai behind me is a unique example of early sculpture styles.
Notice how different it looks compared to the other sculptures.
The face is different and it is kneeling.
The two Moai behind are very picturesque.
Their angle is so interesting.
Our few hours in the quarry has come to an end.
The quarry is fascinating.
You can see so many unfinished sculptures.
It's definitely the highlight of my Easter Island trip.
The tallest one is about nine meters and about 88 tons.
It's hard to believe that the civilization and people of that time were so advanced to be able to build such magnificent creations.
But over time the society collapsed and all of these wonders became ruins.
It's really quite sad.
Hola, behind me are the Moai of Anakena.
These Moai have an especially beautiful location right on the beach.
Next to this group of Moai, there is a single Moai by itself.
Even though they are together, they look completely different.
These ones are skinny, while that one is fat.
Hello, I hiked to the top of a small hill here.
Behind me I have a great view of the Moai and Anakena Beach.
I'm taking a break now between two coconut palm trees.
In the distance, the Moai stand in front of the white, sandy beach.
There are dark clouds gathering in the distance.
I think it will rain soon.
I'm going pack up and get ready to go.
How cute! This is Easter Island's local Pineapple variety.
Awesome! I love it.
I came by myself to see the sunset.
It's so beautiful.
Hola, come to see the sunrise.
It should be almost 7 AM.
Here are the most famous group of Moai on Easter Island.
And there's two eyes on that one and a hat.
Actually, it's not a hat.
It's hair, right? Hat (Actually it is hair).
So cute Just a second ago the weather was great and now it's pouring rain.
We have to run for shelter! Right now, we're trapped in the van by the rain.
We can't go out at all.
It's pouring rain outside.
You still have two days.
I hope the rain dies down soon.
Otherwise, it would be so disappointing.
JiaCen, tell us what you're having.
What about you XiaoXiao.
Tempura Shrimp, very delicious.
How come it looks like an exploded flower? DaGe: Steak.
I want some meat.
So many french fries.
And then there is my soup.
It looks so-so.
Hola, the trail is starting.
Let's go! Now I walked to a Moai with no one around it.
I think I should be able to walk closer.
This is my second stop today.
Looks like a storm is coming.
Constantly going uphill.
I can't climb much longer.
I suggest you sign up for a guided tour, so that you don't have to struggle like this.
Hello Almost there.
I thought I was almost there, but I found out it's only a rest stop.
Finally! I made it to the Birdman village.
I arrived at Orongo Crater.
The volcanic crater is on one side, while the Birdman houses are on the other side.
The houses location is just perfect.
What a great ocean view! It's beautiful.
I finished the Birdman Village so quickly.
Having a guide to describe the village would be better.
If you hike up here by yourself, you won't understand all of the history.
Today has been such a long day.
I'm already so tired, but it will take another two hours to walk home.
I'm extremely thirsty, hot, and tired.
I wish there was a car to take me back.
Success! I found a couple nice people who will take me back.
We're going home! Hola, I have to leave this beautiful island today, Easter island.
I think I will really miss this place.
I love the Moai.
They give you a special feeling, a feeling that everything on Earth will pass away.
No one on Earth can store any of their possessions.
So if you're ever have the chance to be in Santiago, I wholeheartedly recommend that you go to Easter Island.
I'll see you guys in America.
