Lord of hosts
It's not Rio de Janeiro or Lisbon; this is Madeira's own Cristo Rei statue.
It stands on the edge of a small cliff in Garajau, a few streets below my apartment (I can see it from my terrace).
The statue is host to throngs of tourists by day, and at night it becomes the dominion of the wayward youth.
There's a certain symmetry to that.
