HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
It's the first anniversary of Posts From The Edge. To celebrate, over the coming days I'll be sharing a selection of weird travel photos you may have missed.
Until 23 March I'll be reposting two extra images per day, each trawled from the depths of my Instagram feed.
BONUS 1st ANNIVERSARY REPOST No14: Robo-Christ rises again
I love oddball theme parks – and they don’t get much weirder than Tierra Santa in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Visiting this religious theme park was on my offbeat bucket list, and Jesus World didn’t disappoint.
I’d love to be there this week for Easter, when thousands of people will descend on the park to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection.
Maybe one year…
Crowds gather to watch Jesus rising from the grave at Tierra Santa (Holy Land), a religious theme park in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Tierra Santa is one of the world’s strangest theme parks.
It tells the story of Jesus’ life, with over 30 fibreglass displays that depict key moments from the Bible.
Jesus rises every hour, on the hour, accompanied by a rousing chorus from Handel’s Messiah.
When he reaches the peak of his ascent, Christ closes his eyes, nods, then disappears back into his plastic mountain.
The park, in the Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires, is definitely worth a visit, especially if you’re a nun… nuns get in for free!
