Easter Island - Isla de Pascua - Rapa Nui


.................................................FDC fom Easter Island

Easter Island (Spanish: Isla de Pascua) is a Polynesian island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean. It got the name "Easter Island" from the first European visitor, the Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen, who encountered it on Easter Sunday (5.4.1722). It is famous for its 887 extant monumental statues, called moai but also for still undepichered script called rongorongo. The cover is written all over with this script.

jorgesurcl: Rapa Nui is very interesting island, one of most remote inhabited part of the world.

iorana korua !...Hi all ! in Rapa Nui's language.

primoz - Yes it is a very remote place. It is approximately 3.700 kms off the Chilean coast in the Pacific Ocean.

Te Pito o te Henua means "the navel of the world" and is the name (in Rapa Nui's language) that give its inhabitants, mostly of Polynesian origin.



Although they try to keep their traditions alive, today the island has become a tourist destination.
The island is Chilean territory since 1888.
