Chile, Argentina & Uruguay: Day 5 (Part 2)

January 25, 2011

While I waited for my date Alicia to arrive, I decided to enjoy a couple of piscos as the sun created magic in front of my eyes.

One of the things I most love about Easter Island is how uncrowded it is.  It truly felt like I had the entire place to myself.  Well, except for this guy in the distance keeping watch:

Before the sun could disappear over the horizon, Alicia picked me up and took me on a quick jaunt to several spots on the island so that I could capture both the sunset and the statues.  A combination that is sure to take your breath away!

Then we headed to her favorite restaurant on the island, which specializes in ceviche.  We shared a giant pisco sour and stories from our journeys around the world.

Saying goodbye at the end of the night was heartbreaking, but Alicia promised she would try to find a way to sing at my wedding.  I told her I would keep my fingers crossed and that no matter if she could make it or not, she was the best part about my time on Easter Island.

    Those pictures with the statues are breathtaking! We skipped Easter Island (chose the Galapagos instead), but MUST make it back there someday! Cheers

    It sounds like you made such a fabulous and special connection with Alicia…isn’t that one of the best parts of traveling – meeting new friends?

    I hope she is able to sing at your wedding.

    Sometimes, I think that I’m not worthy when I lay my eyes on scenes like this. Your photos are breath-taking, Andi. It looks like God took a paintbrush and stroked rainbows across the sky.
