Carnival of Cities for 2 December 2010

Welcome to the December 2, 2010 edition of the Carnival of Cities, where we tour the world in a single blog post.  We were supposed to publish yesterday but ran into some technical glitches; thanks for your patience.

Thanks as well to the host of the previous edition on Byteful Travel, and the next host is Sheila’s Guide to the Good Stuff on Wednesday, December 15.

If you’d like to host a future Carnival edition on your blog (December 29 is open) please contact me at Sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com. Thanks!

Off we go….
