Cities in Europe

Brussels, Belgium   2008 is your lucky year; it’s almost time for the biannual colorful Carpet of Flowers in the gorgeous Grand Place in central Brussels. I posted this at the Perceptive Travel blog.

Cities in Asia

Hong Kong, China   Wendy says that Hong Kong’s Commuter Escalator Is Also A Cultural Tour, posted at the Escape From New York blog.  I agree; for a great view of the city’s back streets, all you have to do is jump on this escalator that runs up a hill.

That concludes this edition of the Carnival of Cities.
