Location of the Week

The towering statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro is world famous. Situated on top of the Corcovado mountain, you can get there by riding a cable car, buses, or you can just walk.

wil6ka celebrated his birthday by taking a trip to Brazil. He met up with his Lomo friends and witnessed the world-famous Christ the Redeemer statue, that sits on the top of Corcovado Mountain in Tijuca National Park. From the top you can see the downtown of Rio de Janeiro and Rio’s Beaches.
