I got to see the Christ the Redeemer statue when my sister, Andra, and I went to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil a couple summers ago during the 2016 summer Olympics! It is on my Bucket List to see all of the New 7 Wonders of the World! It was absolutely incredible to see this mega statue in real life! 🙂

Photos don’t do justice for how massive this statue felt to stand under in person. Christ the Redeemer stands on the peak of Mount Corcovado (elevation 710 m) and shoots 98 feet high with the arms stretching 92 feet wide. Construction took nine years, from 1922 to 1931 and cost the equivalent of US$250,000 to build. The statue is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone and officially “opened” on October 12th, 1931.

The view from the top of the mountain was phenomenal ♥

Obviously since the 2016 Summer Games were going on, meant that the mountain top was PACKED! It felt so cool to be standing in one place where hundreds of people from all over the world were all standing together appreciating the same thing 🙂

This photo above, I borrowed from Google (thanks Gustavo Facci  😉 )
I’ll have you know that all 3 of those platforms were LOADED with people – I was shoulder to shoulder with strangers 89% of the time.

I can check this baby off the Bucket List!

I’m looking forward to sharing more adventures of seeing the New 7 Wonders of the World!

– Stay Satisfied
