Enric Sala and his team arrived at Pitcairn Island this morning, shortly after sunrise. Here is what they tell about this very awaited instant:
"We saw the island appear exactly like it has been described dozens of times – like a tall ship coming out of the horizon. It is a lush green island, with two large red and ochre patches – landslides that occurred after heavy rains a month ago. Surrounded by mist and rain, it resembled nothing more than a long-lost treasure island."
