    Over the years I've definitely slowed down on buying souvenirs on my trips. It seems like you see the same trinkets and junk for sale all over the world. However, I still do like to try to bring a little something back (to Kim's dismay!) with me to remember the countries I've visited. Things that I collect are masks, traditional hats, shot glasses (silly and pointless, but why stop now) or anything that seems really interesting and unique.

    On our visit to Easter Island we hired a guide for two of our four days. Kim and I rarely hire guides but we figured for EI it would be a good idea to get a better understanding of what we were looking at. While visiting the sites I had mentioned that I would like to get a small statue of a Moai to bring home. (Moai are the carved rock figures found all over the island. You can see them in the title picture for my blog)
    Soon after, he mentioned that we should visit the local jail where they might have better prices
