Urbanguy's Great Idea! was to make a listing of the Consulates and Sister Cities of your region(Post ones of the lower 48 or in other nations in general discussion though).

I thought it was a very cool idea! I am interested in seeing the geographic spread of what nations have representatives where and what cities pair with each other for "sisterdom". So post what you find out here, I'm looking forward to learning lots from this thread and I hope its educational for everyone!

^haha well for a city its size it does have a lot but no where near as much as DC with all the embassies and NYC with embassies and the UN as well as many country capitals and largest cities. I think NYC has over a 100 maybe something like a 130 something i did it once but its been a while and Toronto has over 90 not sure about other leading cities.

PghUSA, where did you find this list? I looked at the Embassy/Consulate web sites for Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, and Mexico and I didn't see Pittsburgh on any of them.

--------------

Though I haven't checked many sites the consulates that I know of in North Carolina are:

Canada: Raleigh

Mexico: Raleigh & Charlotte

http://www.globalpittsburgh.org/globalbiz/...781070313305138 for the consulates (not ALL of them are listed there) I compiled this list for a site I was building over a year ago just combed through google for "Pittsburgh Consulate" until I found (almost) every one.

Sister Cities are easy for any region (but may not be COMPLETE):

http://www.sister-cities.org/sci/directory/USA/PA

;) looking forward to seeing the reach of other regions (again save NYC or DC or SF or Philly or Chicago or Miami--your welcome to post them but I'd be more surprised with those cities on listing the ones you have yet to get ;) )

We only got one, Portugal. Rhode Island has a large Portuguese population, especially from the Azores. Most consulates for the New England region are in Boston. And of course our proximity to New York makes even those kind of redundant.

Anyway, here's Boston's list:

British Consulate General

Consulate General Israel

Consulate General of Canada

Consulate General of Greece

Consulate General of Haiti

Consulate General of Mexico

Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany

Consulate Of Spain

Consulate of Belgium

Consulate of Cape Verde

Consulate of Columbia

Consulate of Denmark

Consulate of Dominican Republic

Consulate of France

Consulate of Ireland

Consulate of Japan

Consulate of Norway

Consulate of Poland

Consulate of The Netherlands

Consulate of Venezuela

Consulate General of Italy

Honorary Consulate of Hungary

Swedish Consulate

And across the river in Cambridge:

I'm not sure about that. I think the most up to date and accurate info for consulates is their own web sites. If anyone knows whether one of their own consulates exists I'm sure they do.

you'd think so, did you ever notice how most cities (especially the smaller ones) don't even list the current mayor?!? Most of these governmental agencies aren't in the technology business, and when people are here traveling abroad the local travelers aid office knows the local consulate, and the embassy # on their passport once called would locate them. It's just that some of these Embassies dont think posting every consulate or every honorary consulate (which there are several dozen) is a top priority. Shame. But what can you do.

Again if anyone has there region to add I'd love to see the lists and thanks for all the contributions!

I just edited my originaly post to add Honolulu's sister cities & friendship cities!

BTW do other cities have friendship cities too? It seems to be a new thing because most of the friendship cities started in 2003 up to 2004 and frankly i dont know what its all about but it had a list of mayors from those other cities.
