Many thanks to Erika (host of the marvellous blog the Grey City Manifesto) for sending in this snap from a recent trip to Brazil. We can’t get enough of the Christ the Redeemer statue here at Stand By Your Statue, and this shot provides a different angle of one of the most famous statues in the world.
Fortunately I’ve heard no tales of dodgy stomach upsets while this photo was being taken!
While sat here in another generally rainy British summer, one can’t help but daydream of the beaches, carnivals, caprihinas, soccer and samba of the Brazilian summertime – they do take their sun very seriously over there.
