Selfies with Moai

Easter Island was so much fun! We stayed at the cabanas bungalows which the place was so tiny but at least we had 5 beds. We stayed near the main town Hanga Roa. The 1st day we were all jetlag we walked through the down lay down on the beds and fell straight asleep till dad woke as all up . The next day went to Orongo an old village next to a crater it was full of water and plants. It was so cool!

We went to the village and saw bird man island that island was used for selecting the chief of Orongo 2 men would do some challenges then they would swim over and tried to collect a bird egg. Sometimes they were there for weeks the first one to get an egg and keep it safe while swimming back to the village wins and gets to be the chief.

After a big sleep we drove around Easter island in a rental car on the left side of the road! When we were driving at least 10 horse were in are way they just would not move eventually they got tired and moved out of the road we were scared that they would dent our car by kicking it.

We visited lots of Moai sites our favorite was the quarry where they made them

and the 15 Moai lined up in a big line we felt like dwarfs against them. The humongous ,rough ,battered Moais in they were so unreal some of the Moais were unfinished or the didn’t get to transported to their planned location. From the quarry we saw 15 Moais in a massive line so we raced off to see them. It was so amazing that we took a million photos and stared at them. We looked like little ants against these big giants.
