Rio de Janeiro on Instagram

Cristo Rendentor seen from our pousada in Santa Teresa
During my travels through Brazil I've been posting pictures along the way from my phone via the app Instagram. Over the next week or so I'll be posting some of them here. 

The first collection are some of my impressions from Rio de Janeiro.

If you also use Instagram you can follow my account: LuciWest. Let me know if you found me via this post and I'll follow you back. 

Next week when I'm back in Berlin I will publish the first video about the trip at Vimeo.com/LuciWest and YouTube.com/GNYBerlin and Blip.tv/InABerlinMinute .
