I find watching boat traffic is very different that watching car or truck traffic, which fortunately I cannot see from our condo. Boats gliding across the water are soothing.
When gazing at the ocean, I sometimes find my thoughts drifting to the experiences and lives of peoples across the ocean. How are the people of Christchurch, New Zealand, one of the most charming towns in the world, coping with the tragedy of the earthquake there this week? Will the people of China develop greater political freedom to match the remarkable improvements in their economic standard of living and national infrastructure? What will Papua New Guinea be like when Julie and I travel there next year?
One of the places across the ocean is Easter Island. It is unique. We are sharing photos of it this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
