This is a blog carnival, when one blog hosts a gathering of posts from many other blogs, all on a similar topic.
A carnival stays fresh when it travels away from its host blog and eats funnel cakes. (Kidding – a Carnival only eats corny dogs, silly!)
This Carnival features posts that focus on any aspect of one single city, anywhere in the world, so let’s take a tour….
