Yes, I am totally jealous of homeboy's topknot.

Actually, I'm totally jealous of y'all's entire trip to 'Eastern' Island.


When yer back home, dig up Thor Heyerdahl's book Aku-Aku, about the year he spent digging at Easter Island. It's an engaging read, even if his theories about cultural diffusionism are now largely discredited.


Oh my god it looks totally amazing. One day....

Thanks for the recommendation! I'm heading over to see if it's available for the Kindle. We used this book while on the Island - it was a great guide and pretty comprehensive: http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Guide-Easter-Island/dp/1880636255/ref=sr_1_9?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1313006151&sr=1-9

Jodi, SO worth it. We are so happy to have gone. Plus, it's way cooler than Austin in July... ;-)
