The New York Times has a nice multimedia piece up this afternoon about the danger faced by the moais, those enigmatic statues on Easter Island, known locally as Rapa Nui.
Check it out and then explore more photos from the island at EarthPhotos.com. Here are a few:
Only Known Authentic Moai Eye, in the Father Sebastian Englert Anthropological Museum near Hanga Roa
Anakena Beach and Ahu Nau Nau
And here are twenty entries, photos and stories from our visit to Rapa Nui.
It means something close to “Want to read something interesting?” This is my wobbly beginner’s Finnish.
Finnish is maybe not the easiest thing for speakers of the Latin group of languages to learn, as you can see by trying to decipher a random front page of the country’s biggest newspaper, the Hensingin Sanomat. Like this one from last week:
Finnish, spoken by about five million people, is a “Finno-Ugric” language, with vague origins in the Ural mountains. Have a look at this nice photo essay about Finno-Ugric people called In Search of Russia’s First Inhabitants.
Anytime is a good time for wildlife photos. Enjoy these photos from our last two visits to Kenya. They’re a lot better when they’re bigger. Click to enlarge them.
Have some fun this weekend.

These photos came from two trips to Kenya, in 2015 and 2016. Most of them came from our stays in Tortilis Camp or Ol Tukai Lodge in Amobesli, or in the Masaai Mara, Kicheche Mara Camp in the North Mara Conservancy or Governor’s Il Moran Camp. If you ever plan a trip to Amboseli please be in touch. I’ve got a great guide for you.
And there are more photos from Kenya at EarthPhotos.com. Next week we’ll try to post some Africa travel writing.
Got time to buy me a cup of coffee?
