Carnival of Cities for 28 January 2009

Welcome to the January 28, 2009 edition of the Carnival of Cities.

I normally sort these neatly by city and continent, but time’s a bit short today, so we’re gonna “go ugly.”

I’m excited to announce that next week (the Feb 4 edition) will be hosted by the fab Caitlin at Roaming Tales. She’s London-based, folks, so the normal Tuesday noon deadline means noon GMT, or a lot earlier than usual if you’re a US blogger.


More than just a mother presents Country Girl (about London) posted at More than just a mother.

Barbara presents DC Celebrates the Lincoln Bicentennial posted at Capitol B, saying, “Washington, DC to celebrate the Lincoln Bicentennial throughout 2009!”

Dominique King presents Cars star at North American International Auto Show posted at Midwest Guest, saying, “Cars star at 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and isn’t that the way it should be? My take on this year’s show and its promise for the future.”
