Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer)

Situated on the crown of the 700-metre Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park, Cristo Redentor overlooks the city of Rio de Janeiro with arms out stretched, blessing the city also know as ‘Cidade Maravilhosa- Marvelous City’.

Expect large crowds during peak season, and waiting times for a tram will be long. However it’s worth the wait and is a must-see for any visitor to Rio. Have your camera ready to snap up the spectacular views!

Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro, State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Santa Teresa)

Are you following my student blog? The Educationally Frustrated Student

“I’m EF*ed - Educationally Frustrated!" And I’ve felt this way for a very long time… I’m part of a eurocentric Higher Education system that tends to forget that a student like me exists: Black, African, and Female. I’m under-represented from the lecture rooms, to the Media – the very industry I’m working to build a career in. And besides that, society tells me I can’t build a career as a journalist without a BA… www.theEFedStudent.wordpress.com
