I couldn't get my Brazilian visa in time before I left Canada, so I had to get in Argentina. Luckily it took very quickly. I only have time for one day, so I make plans to see the big Jesus statue. Being an ex-catholic/atheist, I have mixed feelings about seeing this. It is however, one of the 7 New Wonders of the World. So I set my deeply held reservations aside and make plans to see it. While in line, this guy asks me if there are stairs to walk up rather then the elevator. I'm like "How would I know?". We start talking and it turns our while he is from South America originally, he lives 2 blocks away from me in Toronto! How weird is that? Its really overcast all morning, so I was worried at first if I would see it at all. As I'm up there, it gradually becomes more visible and eventually the weather clears and take a picture while I can.
Anyway, here are some pictures.
I tease the guy about the building he lives in, window panes fell down a few years ago.
As the weather clears more, I quickly get a sunburn.
I head back to my airport hotel as I have a flight to Chile later in the day.
