It’s no secret that Instagram can be a great place to find amazing photos and videos of food. From food photographers like @sonyayu and @danielkrieger to chefs and magazines such as @jamieoliver and @bonappetitmag sharing shots of their best meals, it’s easy to drum up an appetite scrolling through your feed.
Food on Instagram goes far deeper than just what ends up on the plate, however. Whether in the country, on a city rooftop or at the market, many farmers from around the world have taken to Instagram to share their daily routines complete with the joys and struggles farming life brings.

On October 6, the Olympic Torch Relay kicked off a 123-day journey around Russia for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. More than 14,000 torchbearers are expected to carry the torch 65,000 kilometers (40,000 miles), making this the longest Torch Relay in Olympic history. The route covers all 83 regions of Russia and it is estimated that by the end of the event, the torch will have been within an hour’s distance of 90% of the Russian population. The relay ends at the Olympic Stadium in Sochi on 7 February just in time for the Opening Ceremony.
