Locals call the owner “The Angry Frenchman.” The two story restaurant features a small outdoor balcony overlooking the Hanga Roa bay. I staggered into the Iorana after nearly 25 hours of transit (Chicago to Miami, Miami to Santiago, six hour layover in Santiago and to Easter Island.) As I was checking in the owner told me about a new radio station in Easter Island. I heard zydeco-like music playing out from the station behind the front desk.

I was headed there to figure out if this was true when I fell off the stage in Australia (in January, 2011).After several phone calls and e-mails I discovered Dr.Jo Anne Van Tilburg, not on Easter Island, but at the UCLA Rock Art Archive in Los Angeles.I was going to fly there on my plane to check it out.I’ve never been able to do it, but I gotta get there.” Ahu Tongariki is the largest ceremonial structure in Polynesia.
