Since there’s very little to blog about and the Olympics are taking place in Brazil, I thought it logical to start a series of Brazil re-posts from our trip there in February 2012.
From the original…………
You know in the movie Titanic, the star-crossed lovers stand at the bow of the ship, spread-eagle. Well, here, it’s to replicate the stance of the statue.
We took an elevator up to the statue after getting off the train, but walked down. The train was packed both ways, us seemingly the only American tourists. We heard a lot of Italian, Spanish, German, and of course, the native tongue, Portuguese. Seven cruise ships were in town at once. Holy cow.
