This is one of the most interesting group of Sweet 16 cities I can remember in The Best City To Visit Travel Tournament. Over the next few days we’ll lose one more Romanian city between Cluj-Napoca versus Brasov and as the competition heats up, all of the entries can boost their support using these winning strategies from previous years. For the third round in a row I used my tie-breaking privilege to bump Havana over London while Paris jumped two entries, Budapest and Ljubjana in the Second Round’s modified match-ups. On the other side of the bracket, Istanbul has a good chance to knock off Alba Iulia and Cape Town could again quietly advance another round.
Whatever happens though it will be all based on your votes! You have until this Sunday, March 16th at 12pm US EST to pick your favorite 8 cities. Best of luck to everyone! Those of you reading through email and RSS will have to click-through to this page to vote.
Good luck everyone and remember, the Elite 8 round begins next Tuesday, March 18th!
