Wellington v. Baku
Tom over at WellUrban
has been leading the campaign to get Wellington added to the excellent GridSkipper
site (an online urban travel guide which is part of the same online blog empire that includes Gawker
, amongst others).
As such, Wellington is now in competition with Baku - capital of Azerbaijan - for a hallowed spot on GridSkipper
. And if we can't rally enough votes to see off the Bakuites (Bakites? Bakunians? Bakuista?), well, we probably don't deserve that spot.Head over to here to vote
UPDATE. The GridSkipper poll was playing up, but should be back now. Go here, scroll down a bit, and there it is
. (Wellington winning by 47 to 31 votes at the time of writing this).
