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.

The previous Carnival edition was hosted on Perceptive Travel Blog, and it will return there on March 21.

We’ve been having some problems with submissions being accepted properly on the main Carnival website, and have contacted them for a resolution.

If you would like to host a future Carnival edition on your blog, please contact the Carnival organizer:  Sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com. Thanks!

Off we go….
