I wake up at about
8.30 and it is a bit of a struggle after getting in early this morning. I
pack all my things and check out of the hotel. I wait in reception until
10.00 when my guide Grace comes to pick me up for my City tour of
We drive into the centre of the city and the first thing I notice is how
clean it is compared to Lima, also the drivers seem a lot better, no
aggressiveness just regular calm motorists.
We walk around everywhere and spend a good few hours just seeing the
sights; we even go up one of the large hillsides to get a birds eye view
of the city.
This tour is far superior to the Lima one I had yesterday, it had
everything I wanted; an informative guide, visiting all the major
buildings in the city, lots of walking around and all in a limited amount
When the tour finished I get dropped of at the airport and check in for my
flight to Easter Island. After that I go though passport control and get
something to eat. Food options are very limited so opt for a pizza.
The flight to Easter Island is just over five hours and I pass the time
watching a couple of films. When we arrive I collect my bag and meet Dina
the person from my hotel (Tauraa Hotel). After a short drive I arrive at
my hotel check in and settle in to my room, as it is late and dark I
decide to wait until the morning before exploring the local area.
