Marci Bogusz from SPM Hotels discusses the history and culture of Easter Island at Santa Barbara Travel on July 2, 2015
The remote and mysterious Easter Island was the topic of July’s First Thursday presentation at Santa Barbara Travel. Easter Island is the most remote inhabited place on earth: it’s 3,500 miles from Chile, and 3,000 miles from Tahiti.
In two presentations on Thursday evening, July 2nd, Marci Bogusz from South Pacific Management hotels discussed the history of this island – discovered on Easter Sunday in 1722 – and also called Rapa Nui in Polynesian. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the island contains 887 ‘moai’ or stone carvings. Marci discussed the mysteries still surrounding how these moai were carved, erected and moved across the island.
