First, a little shameless self-promotion!
You might notice a little something new over to the left, on the sidebar, just a skosh down under my photo- yep, right there. It's a little badge. Seems that My Mélange has been nominated for Best Travel Blog for the 2009 Bloggers Choice Awards!
Now, I am not gonna beg- well, maybe a little- but I could really use your vote.
It's pretty simple. All you need to do is click on the badge and it brings you to a sign-up screen. You just need to sign up (only takes a few minutes and it's free!) and then you can cast your vote!
And I have also been nominated in the Best Photography category as well!
I am so excited. And seriously, even though I have no chance in hell of winning, what with all the other great travel blogs out there- I'd love the proverbial honorable mention!
Ok, enough about me, let's move onto the real reason we are here…
The Weekly Tweetly.
This week on Twitter…

Ron Dubin's photo of a government building in Peru, led me to this stunning beauty of the Hotel Negresco in Nice.

Jeanine of JCreatureTravel wrote about her favorite not overrun by tourist spots in Istanbul. She is the epitome of an adventure traveler.
ParisienSalon waxed poetic about the delicious Hammam/Spa in Paris – Les Bains du Marais. Oh la la, I love their products!
And for those who may be headed to Chinon, France Le Tasting Room has done a review of a tiny, charming and reasonably priced bed and breakfast.
That's all for now. (This is when I send subliminal messages, "don't forget to vote")
Tune in next Sunday for another edition of The Weekly Tweetly!
