carioca landscape
between the mountain and sea
jesus christ and us

carioca landscape
we sing all our way
to the sea

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Yes that's right, pretty much the entire city of Rio de Janeiro has been given world heritage status. The area in question is actually officially described as 'the Carioca Landscapes between the Mountain and the Sea, ' which include the Botanical Gardens, Corcovado Mountain and the famous statue of Christ, the hills around Guanabara Bay and Copacabana Bay. Barry Manilow would be proud. - MSN website.
