A 360 degree view of Rio

It's funny - but I heard it again yesterday. So many locals have never been to the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio. It is on the short, short list for any tourist. And the view from up there is indeed spectacular.

I get it - as a long term resident of San Francisco I think I lived there for 15 years before I visited Alcatraz Island for the first time - and then only with visiting friends.

So for those who have never been, here is a 360 degree view from the foot of the statue. Click and drag your mouse to move the perspective. Use your Shift and Control keys to zoom in or out.

Better yet - come see for yourself!
