When most people think of Rio de Janeiro they think of Copacabana Beach and Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor). This statue overlooks the city and can be seen day or night. To say I am not the most religious of people is putting it lightly, but this is one of the New 7 Wonders of the World and a must see.
Continuing through the city full of so many colors, you end up at Escadaria Selaron. What started as a project from an artist fixing his front steps, ended up as a beautiful addition to Lapa and Santa Teresa. This was also a chance to see a small part of what a favela looks like up close and personal.
Obviously I cannot walk through a city without taking pictures of some graffiti. This street art seemed to have movement across the wall. I loved it!
