Corcovado

As a tourist in Rio de Janeiro there are a few sites that are considered must sees.  One of these is Corcovado the name of a mountain and the location of Christ the Redeemer.IMG_0198

The statue was created in the 1920s and is about 100 feet tall.  It is probably one of the most viewed images of Rio.  We wanted to see it and of course, during the WC, it was very hard to get to.  Our driver Marcio was very helpful in getting us the express tour and easy access to get to the top.  Here is one of the views of Rio from the statue:

All in all a great place to visit, great views of the city and a beautifully done statue:

Have you ever thought about how they make repairs to the statue.  Well, when we were there, there was a worker at the top of the statue:
