Climbed to the top of the mountain that hosts the huge Christ statue overlooking Rio. It’s really quite a trip to get up to this thing and the last few feet are a bit heavy but the view is worth it. From this point you can see a good bit of Rio and get a grip of how the city is laid out. Like the Vatican in Rome, what’s really impressive about this is the men that built it – the size and scope of this statue is off the charts. This shot is from 2002.
