Carnival of Cities for 13 March 2009

Welcome to the March 11, 2009 edition of the Carnival of Cities (except that it’s finally posting on March 13 – sorry! The South by Southwest Interactive (SXSWi) tech conference is dominating my life right now.)

Normally I organize the cities by continent, but time’s a-wasting, so here you go “raw:”

Tim Leffel presents Mexico City’s Zocalo, Before the Rush posted at Tim Leffel’s Cheapest Destinations, saying, “A 360-degree tour of Mexico City’s huge plaza, on a rare time when it’s empty.”

Marilyn Terrell (for Emma Torry) presents I Heart My City: Emma’s Hong Kong – Intelligent Travel Blog posted at Intelligent Travel Blog, saying, “Emma shares what she loves best about Hong Kong.”

Dominique King presents Polar bears play at the Detroit Zoo posted at Midwest Guest, saying, “We’ve visited the Detroit Zoo’s Arctic Ring of Life many times-always with the hope of catching a glimpse of one of the polar bears in the underwater habitat. We experienced a real treat during our last visit.”

Clare Swindlehurst presents Disney World Vacation Tips – How to Avoid Parking Fees posted at Affordable Disney Vacation Packages, saying, “The one thing many people don”

Vichuda presents Lake Toba Largest Volcanic Lake in The World posted at Kota Medan City Indonesia.

GrrlScientist presents Finnish Emergency Medicine: One American’s Experience posted at Living the Scientific Life, saying, “Probably the thing that scares international travelers most is suddenly becoming ill or requiring emergency surgery while overseas. This story describes one American’s experiences in the medical system in Helsinki, Finland after falling on the ice and seriously fracturing my right wrist and undergoing surgery.”

Caterina Christakos presents Fine Dining Italian Restaurants posted at Orlando Restaurant Reviews.

Sigrid Landau presents Information About Torrevieja posted at A1 How To, saying, “Torrevieja was formerly a small Spanish fishing village with a population of roughly 2,000 people.”

Jake Hidas presents Looking for Chinatown? Take the tunnel! posted at Bay Area Bizarre, saying, “This entry is about one of the stranger aspects of San Francisco, CA.”

steven germain presents Bill and The Earth Room… posted at Rough Fractals, saying, “The most outdoor spot to visit in NYC…”

Anastasia Mak presents AMak Color: Sedona, AZ 2008 posted at AMak Color.

That concludes this edition. Please submit your (one, non-spammy) blog post about any aspect of ONE, single city to the next edition of the Carnival of Cities, using our carnival submission form.
