Weekly Activity (Day 2) Activity 2

Activity 2: Rio de Janeiro, the host of Olympic Games this year, is a huge, vibrant and dynamic city. Perhaps the most famous landmark in the city is a large statue of Jesus called ‘Christ the Redeemer’ that sits on top of a hill overlooking Rio. Here is a picture of the statue. New Zealand is also known for many famous landmarks, including the SkyTower and the Harbour Bridge. In your blog list 3 famous landmarks in New Zealand. Along with the name of each landmark provide a brief description of it. Where is the landmark located? In your opinion, why is it famous?  

Sky Tower: The Sky Tower was built on August 3rd 1997, nearly nineteen years ago. The Sky tower is in Auckland city, It is the tallest building in New Zealand and it is 328 meters tall.

  1. You have chosen some great landmarks, Courtney! I feel very lucky because I have been able to visit Eden Park and the Sky Tower but have yet to spend much time in Paeroa. I did drive to the town to see the L&P bottle once years ago but I forgot to take a picture when I was there so I don't have a record of my trip! I need to remember to bring my camera next time:)

    If you had to choose to visit one of the three landmarks that you've listed here, which one would you choose? I'd love to know :)

    Keep up the great blogging!

    Cheers, Rachel
