Mysteries of Easter Island: the Tapati Rapa Nui festival
In the soft evening light, the track leading up to the site glows orange from dust kicked up by passing cows. Shadows sidle down the hillsides, folding small farmsteads and rows of eucalyptus trees into darkness as they edge towards the ocean. The moai stand silently watching the sky, as they have done for centuries. Moai statues, Rapa Nui, Chile.
