Night Life at Easter Island – Dance ’til you drop

Recently I went to Easter Island, the most remote and least visited World Heritage Site, home of the giant stone heads and dazzlingly attractive men and curvaceous women. To read more and see the video of the mostly nude men dancing an elegant South Seas swaying and a sexually charged version of the Maori war dance. This is the Matato’a Dance Group and they’ve performed worldwide.

    Hello Maribeth, What fun to see of your Easter Island adventures. I hope that our paths cross sometime this winter, possibly at the NYTimes Show in NYC. Will you be there? Hope all goes well with you and family.

    Warm best, Marilyn Staff / Asia Transpacific Journeys

    It’s actually Mrs. NJ here. I marvel at how you are able to do research, photograph keep up with a blog, maintain a website and write while doing all the traveling you do. Thanks so much for the information and manly photos from Easter Island.

      Thanks Mrs. NJ,
      When we do what we love work is a pleasure. I’m very fortunate to have created the career I have and now to be living the life I always wanted. What I’d like to do more of is to give back. My favorite causes are for girls in Nepal;, feeding the homeless with our extra food; in San Francisco and the National Osteoporosis Foundation.
