Results from Contest 10: sister act

In Contest 10, we invited you to pair any two cities that would go well together, and explain why they'd make such a fitting duo. You gotta love the reader who breaks the rules, like Inger Pettygrove of Charlottesville, who got a little carried away and matched a suburb of Liverpool with cities in Germany, Oklahoma and Australia to create the site of the next Crosby, Stilis, Nash and Young concert tour.

But adhering to the two-city specs, we chose as our second runner-up Ken Weiss of Washington, who paired a city in northeast Massachusetts with one in northeast China to produce the bountiful, jolly and altogether seasonally appropriate Rowley Poli.

First runner-up: Jonathan Paul of Garrett Park, Md., who suggests "teaming the bounty of America's heartland with the gastronomy of Provence to produce the mouth-watering duo Hammond-Aix."

And the Travel victory mug goes to Webhead Kate Curtis of Kensington, who paired a small town in British Columbia with a large city in Iran to create the future global headquarters for Internet commerce: Dot Qom.
