I would like to second the subscriber’s opinion in the letter “Found Easter Island ‘Beautiful’(Aug. ’13, pg. 50). My husband and I spent three days on Rapa Nui in 2006 as part of a month-long visit to Chile. We had a wonderful experience exploring this fascinating island and enjoyed the people we met. 

The next year, we returned on a day visit from a cruise ship. We hiked to the island’s highest point, got soaked in a sudden shower and, at the bottom of the hill, found ladies offering us delicious pineapple-on-a-stick. They laughed at our being wet, but the pineapple was a gift!

I would also like to respond to the person who wrote about buying poor-quality CDs in Cuba (Aug. ’13, pg. 56). We loved the music we heard in Cuba on a trip in the fall of 2011 and bought five CDs. We have had no problems with their quality. 

I would urge others to take a chance. CDs are not expensive (about $10 apiece) and are a source of income for people who do not have much.
