I’ve had the opportunity to travel to Easter Island recently and it’s been a most wonderful trip. Aside from enjoying the spectacular nature and feeling of fresh air and freedom, the island’s history and its remains invited me to ponder culture and civilisation.
How do we create and define these?
How do they flourish, why do they decline?
A short trip to Lima afterwards contrasted starkly with the peaceful nature of the tiny island in the middle of the ocean. Lima was intensive, loud and overwhelmingly full of impressions. I’m looking forwards to spending a few more days there later this year.
