Summer storms

Rain reaching Barra da Tijuca beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

After 16 days of scorching sun and unbearable heat, last thursday finally rained.  Not only rain, but a terrible summer storm. Lightnings filled Rio’s sky in the beginning of the night. One of them hit the hand of one of our most famous touristic attractions, Christ The Redeemer.

A lucky photographer captured the right moment of that accident that damaged the Christ’s hand, as you can see here.

After this storm the temperature decreased a little bit and the weekend started with a more pleasant weather.

Have a nice weekend everyone!!
