Update: many of the links are now broken – as of July 2015 – and we couldn’t find them again, so if something looks like it should be linked but isn’t, that is why.

Welcome to the September 17, 2008 edition of carnival of cities.

I normally group entries by continent but am rather short on time today, so we’re gonna mix them up!
