Our fist day on easter island we did what would be our big hike, about 18 to 20 km. Susan's journal has it at 15km, but that doesn't include all the side trips and running from horses.
One drawback of the island is that it is overrun with horses; supposedly 4000 people and 6000 horses. And apparently the horses are dumb enough to fall of the cliffs, since the rocks below were covered in horse bones and the occasional body.

One of the few things I would have changed in the day...the bottoms fell of both my shoes within the first 2 km of the 20 km hike. Well played Taiwan.
