Cargo Ship TRip valpo-Rapa Nui

In February 2001 I desperately try to travel to Rapa Nui, (Easter Island). The cost of flights is prohibitive, so I decide to try to reach it by sea starting from the nearest port located on the coast of Chile: Valparaiso. The ship is an old Russian freighter carrying 2500 tons of gas cylinders. The voyage is not without setbacks, but the madness surrounding the crew and the sailing duration of 13 days prolonged by bad weather make this crazy trip one of the best experiences of my life.
