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.
