All Around Cochabamba

Last weekend, I joined students from the Institute for a tour of Cochabamba. We visited all of the major plazas, cathedrals, the Cristo de la Concordia (the largest Christ statue in the world), and ended the tour with a lovely lunch at a resort-like place 20 minutes out of the city. Pictures from the trip, including one from inside the arms of the Christ statue, follow:

  1. I heard that when Rio de Janiero made its Cristo, they made it 33 meters high because Christ lived for 33 years. Cochabamba wanted a bigger Jesus, so by asserting that Christ actually lived a little bit longer than that, they built their Jesus 34 meters high.
