The Lan Chile flight was pleasant and we were really impressed with the video on demand thingy.  You can choose any movie you want, start and stop it at will, pause and rewind just like a DVD player at home!  Neither of us got much sleep and we arrived in Easter Island all bleary eyed.  The formalities went quickly and we were soon in an arrival hall with about 8 guest house owners there with photo albums to show their properties and locations.  I inspected all of them and chose Cabanas Vianney owned by a very nice Rapa Nui lady named Theresa.  She was thrilled to have a fellow Polynesian-Ina as a guest!  She treated us like family and we were really happy with our stay there. 

After settling in, we headed off to do the business-change money, book a day trip around the island, see the market and what all was happening.  We discovered a dance group would be performing tonight so we made a booking for front row.  We also booked the day trip with Kia Koe Tours for tomorrow.  Then we had a delicious lunch of empanadas at Tia Berta´s, they´re huge and nice and crispy.

The dance show was awesome and some of the costumes left absolutely nothing to the imagination!  Photos to come later!  Of course Ina and I were invited up at the audience participation time and the locals were happy to see we could dance!
