I am not afraid of heights at all. Been in jets, hot air balloons, the top of the Sears Tower (it's always going to be Sears Tower to me) in Chicago at 110 stories. But vertigo?!?! A whole other story! I can look down, but I can't look up! That is the thing that makes me queasy!
This guy is a photographer, who did some wrangling and got up on top of the statue of Christ The Redeemer in Rio. This video illustrates how far up he actually is, and the hassle he went through to get on top of one of the 8 Wonders Of The Modern World.
The pic on top I could totally do. The one out on the arm???? No way! Check it out!
Very cool stuff!
