I remember seeing pictures of the statues on Easter Island in a National Geographic magazine when I was a child. I always wanted to go there and see them for myself. Easter Island belongs to the country of Chile, and we had an exchange student from Chile in 2004. A few years after Antonio returned home, my husband, my daughter, and I went to Chile to visit him and included a side trip to Easter Island. It is the most intriguing place because nobody really understands why all these centuries-old statues exist, waiting on the shore and facing out to sea. How did they come to be there? Who made them? How were they transported? What was their purpose?
