Never Again

Rapa Nui Fieldschool

Hi everyone,
I'm hoping I can find someone on here who might be able to help me. I'm seriously considering applying to an archaeological fieldschool hosted by the University of Hawaii over at Rapa Nui/Easter Island. Before doing so though, I just wanted to try to get as much info as possible from anyone who may have done this same school or who may have visited (or is living in) Easter Island. I just want basic information about the island, the people, what there is to do, etc. Also, I am wondering if anyone has any idea if there is much in the way of vegetarian friendly food on the island. I have been a vegetarian for 9 years now and would prefer to stay that way, but also don't want to end up starving myself.

If anyone has any information at all, please reply to this post!

Thanks so much!!
