Sister City Info by tucsonmike on 17 May 2007 6:48am

They now have a place where you can see which cities are looking for such a relationship or you can have your city placed on the list. I thought of this, because we had my Kazakhstan meeting tonight and had to slog through bylaws.

My home town is twinned with a city on the island of Kyushu, Japan. One of the more unusual twinnings I know of is Bundaberg, Queensland and Nanning, China. Bundaberg's population is about 50,000. Nanning's population is nearly one million.

Well Kaz, have you written to team management 4 Yawkey Way Boston, MA 02115 and informed them they need to change their name?

Ellerd, that is unusual. Normally, they try and match similar style cities etc. It is not a hard and fast rule though. It seems to be more like a shopping expedition.

They prob throw darts at a map, just like how the Wombles did to choose their names :)

What about twinning New York with Baghdad ? Just a thought....

Great idea. Johnny.. , then they could sort out their respective differences in the local pubs!
 
Re: Sister City Info by tucsonmike on 21 May 2007 3:23pm
 
No, Baghdad would be twinned with either Camden, New Jersey or East St. Louis, Illinois.
