July 30.7.2016

Last full day of the holiday today, and I spent some of it visiting the Cristo Rei statue which over looks Lisbon. It was built in 1959, and thanks God for sparing Portugal in WWII (during which it remained neutral). It was inspired by Christ the Redeemer, the statue in Rio de Janeiro.
