Rio de Janeiro

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.

Made a visit to Rio de Janiero and Buzios in 2002 and got to experience first hand Rio lifestyle, food, and people.  Sao Paolo is where the business is but if I lived in Brasil I’d favor Rio.
