sunny 28 °C

Paraguay was a blast really reminded me of my childhood as a kid playing soccer, now it’s onto the Brazil. On my way to Brazil I’ll have to pass the Friendship Bridge. The Friendship Bridge is an arch bridge connecting the Brazilian city of Foz do Iguaçu and the Paraguayan city of Ciudad del Este.
Onto Brazil which is the 5th largest country in the world. I am now heading to the Rio Othon Palace hotel for some sleep.
It was a sunny hot day her in Rio De Janeiro, what perfect way to start the day I had first gone to the beach for a nice swim :) .
I had first started walking down the streets of Rio and I noticed that many people were standing beside this nice looking building, it looked very rich, I had asked one of the other tourists that was there what that building was and he had told me that building was the United Nations Business Center. I thought to myself that’s why the building looks so rich... I had kept on walking and I had noticed that there were many museums in Brazil so I popped in one. The name of the museum is Museum de Arte de São Paulo. The São Paulo Museum of Art (in Portuguese, Museum de Arte de São Paulo, or MASP) is an art museum located on Paulista Avenue in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. It is well known for its headquarters, a 1968 concrete and glass structure designed by Lina Bo Bardi, whose main body is supported by two lateral beams over a 74 meters freestanding space, considered a landmark of the city and a main symbol of modern Brazilian architecture. The museum had many interesting pictures inside; some made me stop and think about them. After looking at Art for 2 hours I had knew it was coming to the end of South America I had to end of with something special so I had gone to see The Christ Redeemer statue in Rio. When I was driving there I had saw the statue from some distance away. The statue was huge but the people there were even more. The statue had meant some significance because I'm catholic, so seeing huge statue was a real surprise.
