Christ the Redeemer

Today we went to one of the seven wonders of the modern world: Christ the Redeemer. The view from the top of the mountain where the Christ sits is incredible. From the top of the mountain you can see the entire city of Rio. However, today there was intense fog that clouded the view, but we still had a great time. We met Vania Neves, a marathon swimmer from Portugal, a journalist from Lesotho, women who worked for Great Britain’s Olympic team, and many more people from around the world.
