Cristo Redentor | Christ the Redeemer

Christ the Redeemer is about 130 feet tall, including the podium. Really an awesome sight up close and an awesome view of Rio and the beaches. There were quite a few people there, but still easy to enjoy (and get photos).

 

Stella and I got to Corcovado and found it was a 2hr wait for a tram to the top. We decided to take a tour van instead, and wound up getting there in about 30 minutes - still an interrsting ride, too. In fact they forgot to charge us, so we didn't fare too badly. We had an overcast day, but we were really glad the low clouds that obscured the Christ the day before were gone.
