Welcome to the Carnival of Cities blog carnival, where we tour the world in a single post, via submissions from a variety of different blogs, all about any aspect of one, single city or fair-sized town.
There were a lot of technical problems for awhile with the main Blog Carnival site, but it looks like they’re “under new management,” which is great.
If you would like to host a future Carnival edition on your blog, please contact the Carnival organizer: Sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com.
Off we go!
