Easter Island is a unique place, full of magic and a mystical atmosphere. The sunrises and sunsets are full of wonderful colors and a sacred silence invades the place …

    The moai that are currently standing were all re-erected in the 1950's by archaeologists. All of them were toppled during the late 1700s when anarchy broke out on the island, which despite popular belief, was not an ecological disaster caused by the Rapa Nui themselves.
