Cristo Redentor

Went up to Cristo Redentor today, a 130ft statue of Jesus Christ, with his arms spread wide embracing and overlooking this amazing city. Apparently quite recently our hostel manager Hugh took a tour group up there to find a guy stood on the edge of one of the hands (Clearly a lie, I doubt he was there). He peered over the edge then jumped right off, free-falling for a second before releasing his base-jumping parachute.

The third photo shows Sugar Loaf Mountain, and you can just about make out the base for the top of the cable car that runs to the summit. Definitely have to go up on that before I leave.
