Here they are folks pics from the bellybutton of the world, and from the island that is farthest away from a continental landmass than any other! These moais were all built between 300 A.D and 1700s by the Rapa Nui people of the island! They average 14 ft and 2 tons
Everyone just has to visit this place! Enjoy!
ps. I have added in some spanish words in the text just for you mom!

The wishing rock, where you have to wish to come back to the island. We all did. Te Pito o Te Henua, this rock marks the navel of the earth.
