dc.description.abstract <p>The entire population of Easter Island (approximately 2500 people) lives today in Hanga Roa, the capital and only city. Two-thirds of the inhabitants are from autochthonous lineage; the remaining residents and visitors are considered to be <em>estrangeros</em> (foreigners) and come mostly from the <em>Conti</em> (an abbreviation of continente) that is, Chile. which has become a metonymy of the outside world in the natives' mind. In February 1995 I was one of those foreigners. My goal here is to recall basic geographic and historic information about the island and to comment upon my stay among the friendly people I met there.</p>
