Easter Island

Rap Nui is a Polynesian island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, at the southeastern most point of the Polynesian traingle. The island is famous for its 887 statues, called "moai" created by the early Rapanui people. Designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it is a place I need to see.

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."    — Robert A. Heinlein
