All the World’s a Carnival!

Rotating carnival ballsI’ve got a great word for our Hawaiian vocabulary word of the day: “p?ka k?niwala” which means amusement park or carnival.

Why is this such a great word? Well, Homespun Honolulu is a participant this week in the Carnival of Cities so it seemed like an appropriate time to add Carnival to our list of vocabulary words.

This is a first for me and I’m happy to be part of something so neat like this. I wanted to share it with everyone and let you guys know how to get there and see all of it.

While most carnivals have a start and end, this carnival is an Internet carnival and goes on 24/7! The best part is you don’t have to leave the house, pay for tickets or stand in line — you just need to sit back, click the links and read.

Each week, there are cities that participate and I decided to share the Lighthouses for the 8th Edition of the Carnival of Cities which carries the title of Global Village.

All of you bloggers out there can do this too. Just blog about your city or something going on in your city and submit the story for consideration. You can go here for the instructions and other information.

Cities and their stories can be truly fascinating. This gives a fresh idea of what’s going on in the world beyond our own borders! Rest your mouse on the addresses of the cities listed below and you will see the names of their stories at the end of the web address in your status bar.

Here are the links to the stories included in this week’s Carnival of Cities:

American Cities

European Cities

Asian Cities

Australian Cities

Enjoy this trip around the world and happy reading!
