Winter in Rio?!

Hey guys!

This is the face of a beautiful winter day in Rio!

A nice walking from Arpoador to Leblon beach is really recommended! The only thing you will need is a willingness to walk and maybe stop by to drink a cold coconut water… But with this view I guess it will be easy, though!

Christ will be photographed by Google Street View!

After Grand Canyon in the U.S. and a mountain in Japan, now is Rio’s turn! The Christ the Redeemer Statue will be photographed by the Google Street View. Isn’t it amazing?!

Accordingly to O Globo journal, the Google’s staff has begun to capture panoramic images of the monument in Rio atop the Corcovado mountain. The images are made by an equipment called “Trekker” with 15 cameras, as you can see in the video below made in the Grand Canyon.

 

While the images are being produced, see the ones already done in Rio!
