South-Pacific Idyll with a War Ship

During my visit on Easter Island, the island was protected by the French frigate Prairial. This meant not only that drug smugglers stayed away for that week (the Prairial had just captured 680 kg of cocaine), but it also provided particularly idyllic views.

  1. List of X says:

    They have captured 680 kilos of cocaine, and now they must be circling the island trying to find an exit, and wondering if these giant stone heads they see are real.

    • Hahaha!
      I actually wondered if the sailors in such situations aren’t tempted to keep a little bit for themselves. After all, the smugglers will hardly complain if the amount they are charged with is less.
      But it’s the French Navy and they are beyond reproach, of course.

  2. Stunning photographs. Colors are so awesome.
