We had the chance to pay a second visit to the quarry where the Moais were carved on a sunny afternoon. The statues were there waiting for us.
The guy above was called “The tattooed Moai” by our guide. He wears a carving of what looks like the westerner boats that came to the island in the 17th century. Was it carved by locals or by un-respectful traveler, that’s another mystery.
Apart from its iconic statues Rano Raraku also offers a fantastic scenery with a view on the ocean and further left the platform with the 11 Moais.
Not much talk today, just 3 more pictures of the first Nikon F roll of the year. As usual I spend some time weekly around the popular yet central area between Lavender MRT and Serangoon road (Little India).
Below one of the stall in the ground floor of the public housing building opposite lavender MRT.
Just before Serangoon road, on Marne street s small Chinese temple lies in a patch of greenery that will soon be used for more constructions. I do not know his name and but two of the horse statues were guarding the entrance (closed). These are something temples and shrines, I must find someone to explain me one day.
Another day, another place. Hong Lim Complex is a public housing building at the border between the CDB (Central Business District) and Chinatown. These are a lot of shops selling food, Chinese medicine items, and so on. I liked the scale they use in that one.
