I didn’t have to work too hard to get these pictures.  Both were taken from my Brazilian hotel room balcony!

In the background of the of the picture on the right, you can see the blue ‘glow’ from the lights on the “Christ the Redeemer” statue that has made Rio famous.  This is the backside however, that faces a favella.  They say “Even Jesus has turned his back on us.”  This isn’t true however, the favella was built after the statue was erected.
