Just found this City Stories site. It’s great.
"What’s the big idea here?
I have this idea. There is a thing that I call city-based storytelling. It’s somewhere in between a personal journal and a city guide. It’s a series of personal stories where the city itself becomes a character in your story. SF Stories is basically my long love letter to San Francisco. What city do you love?
What is The City Stories Project?
It’s a network of city-based storytelling sites, tying real people in real cities all over the world together with a thread of personal stories.
What is city-based storytelling?
It’s halfway between a personal journal and a travel book. It’s when you tell the stories of your life, and the city itself becomes a key character. It’s a long, winding love story to the city you live in. It’s personal, true stories about what it’s like to be who you are, and live where you live."
