NATIVE VENDOR WAITS FOR CUSTOMERS TO BUY FISH ON EASTER ISLAND.
A native "Rapa Nui" woman waits for customers while selling a tuna at a beach, at Easter Island on October 31, 2003. Easter Island's isolation draws tourists fascinated with the mysteries of how humans first made their way to the globe's most remote populated island, how they developed their culture and how they erected enormous statues of faces carved from volcanic rock. But living on a tiny island thousands of miles from the nearest hospital is not as romantic as it may seem. REUTERS/Carlos Barria/LIFE-CHILE-EASTERISLAND CB/HB/GN
