During Spring break, the University Choir went on tour to their director's home country of Brazil. They had an amazing experience. Kwei-Cee, one of the students, came in today and showed me all of his pictures he had posted online. Of the 107 pictures I saw, this one just took my breath away and I immediately emailed it to myself. I post it here now for you all to enjoy.
At the very top of the highest point in the picture is a immense status of Christ. The statue stands on the hill of Corcovado, which is 710 m tall (about 2,400 feet). The Statue of Christ stands 30 meters high (100 feet), covered in a mosaic of soapstone. On its base there is a small chapel. Just a moment later, the peak and statue were covered by the clouds. The picture of the Christ looking down over the city gives you a sense of Kwei-Cee's perspective as he took the cloud picture from far below and across the bay.
