São José do Rio Pardo as viewed from the Statue of Christ the Redeemer, situated on top of the most highest hill of the city. The statue represents Jesus standing with outstretched, welcoming arms.

The statue stands 55,774 foot tall. Many cities in Brazil has their own Christ Redeemer seated on the top of the most highest hill of the city.

The bandstand named "Coreto Elias Fecuri" at the November XV Square

On Sundays night there is music in the bandstand. It's a great atmosphere full of people who just came to listen music, to meet or watch people and have fun.

  16. What a wonderful find is this blog! I clicked on it as it passed the recently updated scroll. I will add it to my links list, if you approve.

    I hunt for blogs written by people of peace or with content to promote ways to live in peace with the planet.

    People reaching out to other people is the way to understanding, and the internet has a wealth of opportunities for connections from the heart.

    This blog has such a wonderful links list! Every one I tried gave a sense of peace. I will be back often to read your posts and to explore your links.

    Thank you.
