cristo redentor and a japanese grandpa

This postcard came from Mina, a postcrosser in Brazil. At first glance it is a straighforward touristic card of Rio's famed statue of Christ. Then I read the heartwarming message: "This monument means a lot to me. When my grandpa came from Japan he was 90 years old and he walked like a young man to reach the Christ monument, with beautiful shiny eyes smiling like a young boy! It is indeed a magical place to visit."
