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 Blog Carnival administration site now requires you to set up a free login account before submitting a post. This is rather a pain, but I hope it helps cut down on the not-insignificant number of spam submissions which are only looking for link-building rather than also sharing good content and community-building.
We normally publish every other Wednesday, but author travel required a one-week shift this week. The previous Carnival edition was hosted on the Perceptive Travel blog, and it will return there on November 14.
If you would like to host a future Carnival edition on your blog, please contact me as the Carnival organizer: Sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com.
Off we go!

San Blas Islands, Panama Henry presents Finding Freedom posted at Finding Freedom, saying, “In August 2012, I spent an amazing 72 hours sailing through Panama’s stunningly beautiful San Blas Islands. The San Blas Islands are devoid of commercial development, leaving 380 unspoiled islands for you to explore…one for each day of the year plus extra! This post covers the first day of my three day sailing charter through these gorgeous part of the world. Days two and three are posted in the blog as their own articles. If you ever make it to Panama, you owe it to yourself to see the San Blas Islands.”
Cities in Asia
