Theme Day - Sister Cities

Sister Bridges: Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco; Ponte Vecchio, Florence; and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Sydney has sister city relationships with six cities - San Francisco, USA; Nagoya, Japan; Wellington, New Zealand; Portsmouth, England; Guangzhou, China; and Florence, Italy. I have been fortunate enough to visit two of these cities - San Francisco and Florence, both of which have famous bridges.

(Apologies for the poor quality of the first two photos. They were taken in the predigital era.)

Please visit my fellow Sydney bloggers, Julie and Sally, to see which of Sydney's sister cities they have chosen.

To see sister cities around the world have a look at City Daily Photo.

Very nicely laid out, Ann. And the photos are to treasure. Such a good linking idea.

I am so glad we could all work together on this one.

Connecting with bridges is a great idea.

Hyde dp has also made the bridge connection and twinning as we call it in the UK. Approproate that your stin city has another famous bridge too.

Wow, that is very fortunate of you to have visited two of your sister cities and to have photos to prove it! Thanks for taking the time to dig the old photos up.

Sydney for me is really the most sister city of the world because my sister and her family live here.

I have a similar picture of Ponte Vecchio from Florence, except yours is better than mine because the day I was in Florence it rained and rained and rained and rained and didn't stop for a single minute - all my photos are absolutely terrible! Oh well, I guess I'll just have to go back again ;)

I like your linking with the bridges too - good idea.

Livio, I like the idea of 'sister city' being where your sister is. That would make my 'sister city' Munich.
