Greetings from 18th-century Rapa Nui, also known as Easter Island! All these moai here — the big stone statues — are really cool... although getting one dropped on your toe would be bad. "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 grass on the island is really made of plastic. 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 copy of "How to Successfully Battle Clams in 5 Easy Lessons." Oh, good news! I won the Birdman competition! I did it by distracting the others, then tying their shoelaces together. See you later!
