Carnival of Cities for 5 March 2009

Welcome to the March 5, 2009 edition of the Carnival of Cities, where we tour the world in one blog post, through the eyes and words of contributing bloggers.

Last week we were hosted on the UpTake Attractions blog – thanks, UpTake!

This carnival was scheduled for yesterday (it usually posts on Wednesdays) so I apologize for the delay.

Off we go….

Cities in the Americas

Tallahassee, Florida, USA Joe Manausa presents A Small But Significant Shift In The Housing Market posted at Really Better Real Estate, saying, “One key trend to pay attention to in any local real estate market is the movement of the sales success trend. What this measures is the total number of home sold divided by the total of homes listed (put on the market) during the same period of time.”

San Francisco, California, USA Kathryn presents Top Ten Neighborhoods to Visit on a Trip to San Francisco posted at Kathryn Vercillo on HubPages, saying, “There are a lot of great neighborhoods in San Francisco but these are the ten must-sees for a visitor.”

Chicago, Illinois, USA Byteful Travel presents Adler Planetarium: Cutting-Edge meets Classic posted at Byteful Blog, saying, “It is basically a crime to visit Chicago without spending some time in Chicago’s Museum Campus, the home of the world famous Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum, the oldest planetarium still in existence today. Beyond being the only museum in the world with two full-size planetarium theaters and being the oldest planetarium still existing today, the Adler Planetarium has continued to adapt to the changing times and remains an excellent place to explore the wonders of the galaxy around us — the perfect balance between classic and cutting-edge.”

Boston, Massachusetts, USA Kara Williams presents Best Educational Activities in Boston for Kids posted at Traveling Mamas.

Lima, Peru Heatheronhertravels presents Joanne’s cycle tour of Lima – in Peru posted at Heather on her travels, saying, “Read how Joanne took a cycling tour of the Peruvian capital, Lima, and saw the city from a different angle, taking in olive groves, an ancient adobe pyramid and a statue with a llama on its head.”

Cities in Asia

Jaipur, India Mara Gorman presents Mondays are for dreaming: Jaipur, India posted at The Mother of All Trips, saying, “The author share photos and dreams about taking her children on a trip to India’s famed “Pink City.””

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Sigrid Landau presents Kuala Lumpur Malaysia Sightseeing Tour Pass Gets You Around KL Effortlessly And Cheaply posted at A1 How To, saying, “The Malaysia tourism promotion makes it comfortable for tourists to access the many major tourist spots in Kuala Lumpur within one day.”

Cities in Europe

Alicante, Spain Andrew Edgington presents The Alicante Fiestas in Spain posted at Spain Golf Villa Rental Alicante.

Barcelona, Spain ivanisko presents A Report from Barcelona posted at Bookstore Guide, saying, “We recently posted our latest report from our summer road trip – report from Barcelona – which offers our impressions of the local anglophone bookstore scene.
