Carnival of Cities logo

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 August 25, 2010 edition of the Carnival of Cities, where we tour the world in a single blog post.

Thanks go out to the host for the previous edition, Travel with Teens, and greetings to our next host on September 8 at Let’s Do Something Different.

If you’d like to host on your blog, please contact me at Sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com. Thanks!
