X - Xi'an, China

 

Xi'an is a city in China and the capital of the Shaanxi province. As one of the oldest cities in China. The city was known as Chang'an

before the Ming Dynasty. Xi'an is one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, having held that position under several of the most

important dynasties in Chinese history, including Zhou, Qin, Han, Sui, and Tang. Xi'an is the eastern terminus of the Silk Road and home

to the Terracotta Army.

 

Since the 1990s, as part of the economic revival of interior China especially for the central and northwest regions, the city of Xi'an

has re-emerged as an important cultural, industrial and educational centre of the central-northwest region, with facilities for research

and development, national security and China's space exploration program.

A - Aalst, Belgium

 

Aalst is a city in the Flemish province of East Flanders along the Dender River. The town has a long-standing feud with Dendermonde

(situated north along the same river), which dates back from the Middle Ages.

 

Aalst is famous for its carnival festivities, celebrated every year in February. A Prince Carnaval is elected, who is allowed to "rule"

the city for three days. A big parade crosses the city on Sunday, with about 70 groups of costumed volunteers and parade cars. Carnaval

Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday (by tradition, the day before Ash Wednesday), is known as the day of the 'Voil Jeannetten' (literally: "the Dirty Jennies"),

i.e. men dressed as women. The festivities traditionally end with the "Burning of the Doll", happening on Tuesday evening.

B is for Bayeux, France

 

My greatest memory of Bayeux is the Bayeux Tapestry.

 

Back in 1066, when William the Conquerer re-claimed the English crown, the average person couldn't read or write.

 

So, in order to show the story, a large tapestry was created to commemerate and record the history of the event, based on the new kings perspective, of course.

 

Originally it was hung around the internal walls of the Bayeux Church.

 

bayeuxtapestry.jpg

 

It is now displayed in a custom made exhibition room.

Simply awesome.

C is for Carcross, Yukon

 

Location: on the South Klondike Highway, between Whitehorse, Yukon and Skagway, Alaska

 

Population (June 2008): 431

 

Elevation: 2,170 feet (662 meters)

 

Home of the World's Smallest Desert, and the great beach of Lake Bennett. The population is about 50/50 Native and non-Native. Tourism (summer primarily, but winter as well) is a very important component of the economy.

 

In this photo, the village is at the bottom centre, to the left of the stretch of open water. Lake Bennett is in the foreground, then Nares Lake, and Tagish Lake is in the distance.

 

53835734.jpg

 

The South Klondike Highway crosses the Nares River at Carcross. This view looks north - the mountains are collectively known as Gray Ridge. What appears to be a snowy meadow on the right is frozen Grayling Bay, a very shallow body of water that provides great waterfowl viewing.

 

82523672.jpg

 

The footbridge across the Nares River disappears into a morning mist. The bridge was built in 1978 at the same location as a wagon bridge constructed to access a series of silver mines in 1905. Caribou Mountain is seen in the background.

It may be tiny and it may be remote, but it sure is pretty! :biggrin:

H - Hong Kong

 

Hong Kong is one of two special administrative regions (SARs) of the People's Republic of China (PRC), the other being Macau. Situated on China's south coast

and enclosed by the Pearl River Delta and South China Sea, it is renowned for its expansive skyline and deep natural harbour. Hong Kong is one of the most densely

populated areas in the world. Hong Kong's population is 95 percent ethnic Chinese and 5 percent from other groups.

 

Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the First Opium War (1839–42). It was occupied by Japan during the Pacific War, after which the British resumed

control until 1997, when China regained sovereignty.

 

Under the principle of "one country, two systems", Hong Kong has a different political system from mainland China. Hong Kong's independent judiciary functions under

the common law framework. The Basic Law of Hong Kong, its constitutional document, which stipulates that Hong Kong shall have a "high degree of autonomy" in all matters

except foreign relations and military defence, governs its political system.

 

As one of the world's leading international financial centres, Hong Kong has a major capitalist service economy characterised by low taxation and free trade, and the currency,

Hong Kong dollar, is the ninth most traded currency in the world. The lack of space caused demand for denser constructions, which developed the city to a centre for modern

architecture and the world's most vertical city. The dense space also led to a highly developed transportation network with public transport travelling rate exceeding

90 percent, the highest in the world.

J - Jakarta, Indonesia

 

Jakarta is the capital and largest city of Indonesia. Located on the northwest coast of Java. Jakarta is the country's economic, cultural and political centre.

It is the most populous city in Indonesia and in Southeast Asia, and is the twelfth-largest city in the world. The city's name is derived from the Old Javanese

word "Jayakarta" which translates as "victorious deed", "complete act", or "complete victory".

 

Established in the fourth century, the city became an important trading port for the Kingdom of Sunda. It grew as the capital of the colonial Dutch East Indies.

It was made capital of Indonesia when the country became independent after World War II. It was formerly known as Sunda Kelapa (397–1527), Jayakarta (1527–1619),

Batavia (1619–1942), and Djakarta (1942–1972).

M - Mechelen, Belgium

 

Mechelen is a Dutch-speaking city and municipality in the province of Antwerp, Flanders, Belgium. The Dijle flows through the city,

hence the term 'Dijlestad' ("City on the river Dijle").

 

Mechelen lies on the major urban and industrial axis Brussels-Antwerp, about 25 km from each city.

 

Most cities in Flanders have a mock name for their inhabitants. Since 1687, for their heroic attempt to fight the fire high up in

the Saint-Rumbold's Tower, where the gothic windows had shown the flaring of only the moon between clouds, Mechlinians have been

called 'Maneblussers' (moon extinguishers).

 

Mechelen is also the home town of two of the oldest Belgian football clubs, founded in 1904: K.R.C. Mechelen and K.V. Mechelen.

KV Mechelen won the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and the European Super Cup in 1988.

Q - Querétaro, Mexico

 

Santiago de Querétaro is the capital and largest city of the state of Querétaro located in central Mexico. The founding date of the city

is given as 25 July 1531, when during a battle between the Spanish and the natives of the area, an eclipse occurred during which Saint James

on a white horse carrying a pink cross supposedly appeared, causing the natives of the areas to surrender. In reality, Spanish dominion here

was gradual.

 

Today, the city is one of the fastest-growing in the country, with its economic base in industries such as chemicals, paper products and machinery.

This has caused the city and the metropolitan area to attract many migrants from other parts of Mexico.

 

The city of Queretaro has had an outstanding industrial and economic development in the last 15 years. In 2009 Queretaro was the metropolitan area

with the highest GDP per capita in Mexico with US$20,000.
