Embed videos, ideally no longer than 5 minutes in length, that summarise or encapsulate the best aspects of your favourite city/cities, or what you like most about these cities. Videos can be chosen from popular video-sharing sites such as youtube or vimeo, and can be any format, such as a music video, walking tour or a well-presented slideshow. It should serve to 'sell' your favourite city to the readership here, or expose positive aspects of it that are little known to the general public. The objective is to impress and enlighten.

Forum protocol for embedding videos: "youtube" or "vimeo" in square brackets, followed by the video code (the alphanumeric code following "/watch?v=" on youtube, and "vimeo.com/" on vimeo), followed by "/youtube" or "/vimeo" in square brackets.

Example:

Sucre, Bolivia. Embedding wastes too much screen space and takes too long to load the page. Just click the link. Nobody's going to look at a boring place like Sucre, anyway. No bright lights or casinos or 5-star hotels or traffic din or freeways or fashionable shops or steel/glass skyscrapers, or world-class skyline, like in the "beautiful cities".

I love Swedish architecture. So understatedly confident, elegant yet imposing.
