Rio Part 5: Christ the Redeemer Statue

We were so excited that the sun was shining (plus we missed a few days of touring around due to the weather) that after hang gliding, we kept on moving and booked a tour bus up to the Christ the Redeemer statue. It is huge and pretty cool, but the view was my favorite part.


Good Friday. SO. MANY. PEOPLE.
 


I really love this picture. The statue is behind me, and the sun is behind it, casting this shadow on the clouds below.


Lots of people come up to the statue at dusk to watch the sun set...
But as the sun was setting this wall of clouds started moving in
It came in and totally blanketed everything, including the statue. We headed down and were glad we got there in time to see the view....and felt really sorry for the people just arriving in their tour buses!
