Dad took me to one of the most isolated places in the world (Once again, what the heck was he thinking!) It was a 5 hour flight from Santiago, and it is half way between Santiago and Tahiti! It was an outdoor museum and I loved running around the giant statues (Moais). The statues were fascinating and my dad even bought a wooden one that was bigger than me to take home. We hired a taxi driver and took 2 full day tours around the island to the best sights, instead of going on a tour. He even broght his son on one of the days, so I had someone to play with who was just a little older than me. We took a picnic each day and ate outside by these giant Moais. I dont think I will ever forget these statues. We went into a cave and did some hiking.

After Easter Island we spent a few more days in Santiago, then back to Rio to pick up brother Vitor, before coming back to Miami.
It was six incredible weeks that I spent with dad....17 flights in 4 countries.

Dad said that I was a great travelling companion and very easy to travel with. I cant wait until next summer when dad says he will take me travelling again. I dont know how it will top this trip.
