Carnival of Cities for 14 January 2009

Carnival of Cities

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 this edition of the Carnival of Cities.

This is a blog carnival, where one blog publishes contributions from other blogs. In this one, we explore any aspect of a single city, anywhere in the world.

Last week was hosted by the UpTake Attractions blog, and next week we’re back at our “home” blog, the Family Travel Logue on BootsnAll.

If you’d like to host the Carnival on an upcoming Wednesday, please contact me at sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com. Thanks!

Off we go….

Cities in the Americas

Orlando, Florida, USA   MB presents The Cathedral Church of St. Luke posted at Florida Everyone Forgot, saying, “I came across this ornately decorated cathedral while walking around Downtown Orlando a few months ago. It’s amazing that after visiting the city for years, I never saw this amazing building.”

Mexico City, Mexico   Catherine Bardrick presents Chilling out Chilango-style in Chapultepec Park posted at Small Fish in the Big Taco, saying, “Many think of Mexico City as a polluted crime-ridden,traffic-choked kind of place, but I am interested in showing very different aspects of the city. Look at what a highly liveable place it is full of leisure and relaxed chilling-out…and check out those colours which are a constant source of wonder and delight…”
