Where in the World is Rapa Nui???

Yes, I know that is the other name for Easter Island, but can you accurately place it on a small map?? And with precision?? This challenge was recently extended to me in email form. A friend sent me the link to test my traveler IQ.

This test is offered on the travelpod website, where you can also take challenge yourself on your knowledge of UNESCO sites,flags of the world and world capitols.

I will say that I was able to place all sites in the UK ( and curiously Israel as well) within a 70 km radius of the actual site. It is a fun way to pass a little time, and makes you realize that as much as you may know, you need to learn more.

I was over 1000 km off on placing Rapa Nui, and do not even ask about Lesotho!!
