Carnival of Cities for 8 February 2012

Welcome to the Carnival of Cities blog carnival, where we tour the world in a single post, via submissions from a variety of different blogs, all about any aspect of one, single city or fair-sized town.

This blog hosts the carnival a couple of times a year so if you have an education-related post that relates to or is set in one city, you can participate too.

The previous Carnival edition was hosted on Sheila's Guide, and you’ll find the next one (February 22, 2012) on the Perceptive Travel Blog.

If you would like to host a future Carnival edition on your blog, please contact the Carnival organizer:  Sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com. Thanks!
