In case you missed my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth stops on the island, click here, here, here, here, here, and here. Our final stop on the island was not a scheduled one. Alicia, if you remember, made me return to my room before starting the tour in order for me to get my bikini and it was specifically for this reason; she wanted to take me to her favorite beach once we were done visiting everything. Most people when they think about Easter Island only picture the Moai in their mind and forget that the island is located in the South Pacific, aka haven for exotic beaches. The beach she took me to was named Anakena and there was no second guessing that we were in the land of Polynesia.
Not only did the beach not dissapoint in its splendor, it also had more Moai!
As we watched the sun set, we bonded over our stories of romantic liaisons around the world (Alicia had a soft spot for foreign men as well and had even fallen in love with a man that, believe it or not, lived in the same city as me — small world, huh?).
Not wanting our enlightening conversation to end, we made plans to spend the rest of the evening together. As Alicia drove me back to my hotel in order for me to get ready, she told me that I was about to experience a night I would never, ever forget. . .
