I just uploaded some more pictures from SEO de Janeiro on FlickR -> check it out
Today´s the last day, but some of the people are staying till tomorrow, or even thursday (like myself), so we´re not out of trouble yet
I´m really looking forward to spend two more days relaxing on the fabulous Copacabana beach – it´s 33 degrees (celsius!) -> there´s really not that much what you can do in this heat, but boiling on the beach
Btw. here´s an impression from the conference:
… which sadly is located directly at the Copacabana – here a view out of the window
We also partied a little (who would have thought…) at an awesome Club here in Rio (I actually don´t remember the name…?!)
Although Rio is pretty cheap, this club wasn´t…
And Tim had to give up eventually…
But thank god we did a little boat-trip on sunday, to relax a little… Christoph sure seemed to like the view
SEO de Janeiro has really been a blast so far! Day 1 was just about partying a little, to get to know all the people in a relaxed atmosphere – so we had a pool party in a great mansion on top of one of the numerous hills of Rio de Janeiro. Good times
On Day 0 (most of the people arrived early) we did a tour through the famous Rocinha favela, which is actually the largest favela in Rio (approx. 160.000 people live there!). Pretty cool tour (I actually filmed a little while walking throught the narrow paths – check it out on Youtube) – really something you don´t get to see so often!
Today is the actual 1st day of the conference part of SEO de Janeiro, at a great venue right at the Copacabana – that´s the way to work
Btw. since a lot of people are asking about it -> we got people from 11 (!!) different countries attending SEO de Janeiro: Germany (actually 7 people!), U.S., Belgium, Denmark, Australia, Austria, England, Belgium, Argentina, New Zealand and Brasil. Just the brightest SEO minds from all over the world – nice
Some more pictures from our trip:
The famous Ipanema Beach
Awesome view from top of Rocinha
I set up a Photostream “SEO de Janeiro” over at my FlickR account, which I will keep updating – so check it out!
… damn it´s hot here…
This morning I went jogging at about 7.30 in the morning, and it was already 28 degrees (celsius!)!
What a great place for a great conference! Our 1st SEO de Janeiro starts tomorrow morning, but most of the people already arrived (even 7 (!) guys from germany!), so we´re having a sick day planned out for today. SEO de Janeiro Baby!!
