Greetings from 18th-century Rapa Nui, also known as Easter Island! All these moai here — the big stone statues — are really cool... although the one that looks like Fred is truly frightening. "Rapa Nui" means "navel of the world." If this island were MY navel, my stomach would be HUGE! It's called Easter Island because Europeans first set foot here on an Easter Sunday. And I thought it was because all the moai were made of pure milk chocolate. Sam told me they had battling clans here, but I thought he said "battling CLAMS." If I'd heard him correctly, I wouldn't have brought my battery-powered, supercharged, industrial-strength clam rake. Oh, good news! I won the Birdman competition! I did it by distracting the others, then tying their shoelaces together. See you later!
