The Very First Instagram Was Taken While Traveling

Two days ago, social photo sharing app Instagram posted a small update on their blog which then rippled throughout the internet. It was their second birthday, and they were celebrating by reflecting on the very first Instagram photo ever posted.

The image of a flip flop-shod foot and a happy dog was snapped and uploaded by Instagram founder Kevin Systrom in July 2010. It wasn't until October of the same year that the public could chime in with their own pics, as Instagram notes that the app was actually titled "Codename" until those later months.

TheNextWeb actually got an answer from Kevin on where that first Instagram was taken. Now we have good news and bad news. The good news: it was while on a road trip down to Tacos Chilako in Todos Santos, Mexico, a simple taco stand that's still around and very cheap. Grab a few tacos, a Fanta, and add your image to the photographic history of the place. The bad news: you'll have to find your own cute doggy.
