Carnival of Cities for 18 February 2009

carnival-of-cities-logo1Welcome to the February 18, 2009 edition of the Carnival of Cities, where we tour the world in one blog post.

We’re taking a little time away from our “home” blog, the Family Travel Logue, to host the Carnival here on the Perceptive Travel Blog this week. Next week (February 25) please join us on the UpTake Attractions blog.

If you’d like to host this Carnival on your blog any Wednesday in March, please contact me at sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com.
