Small article at CNN.com on Easter Island.
Would love to travel there sometime.

Thanks...nice overview. I am not sure why but I prefer the Moai without the hats. :tiki:

If you can't make it to Easter Island, the Polynesian Cultural Center has an Easter Island display, carved by a Rapa Nui, to tide you over.

That article originally appeared on the Budget Travel website. Here's a reference:

Thanks for the link Chris....since I am pretty new, I never knew all that information about Easter Island. I knew about the statues but not the history. Interesting that only 35 have been uprighted out of so many. Hope the ones lying down are getting a nice view of the sky and not eatin' dirt. :D
