K= Kokila, Kaiti, Kristen ITC & Kalinga. K is a letter where no particular font called out to me
Kokila was developed by Modular Infotech for use in displaying Hindi text in documents http://www.fonts.com/ Kaiti font – original Simplified Chinese
Kristen ITC designed by George Ryan ITC Kristen is in the style of children’s handwriting and was inspired by a handwritten restaurant menu.
Kalinga I have learned a lot about Kalinga. Kalinga is a province in the Philippines and Kalinga is font which supports Oriya script. What’s Oriya you ask? So did I. The Oriya script was developed from Kalinga which is handed down to us from the Brahmi script of ancient India. The province Kalinga sounds like a beautiful place: mountains, valleys, lowlands and tropical forest. Has anyone ever been there?
Kansas City, Missouri
K.C. is the largest city in the state of Missouri. It was founded on the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas rivers. Across the river from Kansas City, Missouri is Kansas City, Kansas. After you get there, it is not at all confusing.
KC was founded in 1838 as the Town of Kansas. On March 28, 1853 it incorporated as Kansas City, Missouri. It had a very rich and varied history. Far too much to cram into one blog. Besides music (blues and jazz) and a few shady characters, there are stories of so many strong and charismatic people who helped forge KC into the city it is today. http://www.kshs.org/ Kansas City historical society
The civil war played a major part in KC history. http://www.civilwaracademy.com/index.html
And we can’t forget KC’s famous barbecue. http://www.bing.com/entities/search?q=kansas+city+barbecue&filters=segment:”local”&qpvt=kansas+city+barbecue&FORM=SNAPST

The first reason I’m such a fan of Kansas City Missouri is its ballet. The Kansas City Ballet is near and dear to my heart. Because of the ballet company, I discovered the wonderful city of Kansas City. It is friendly, welcoming and beautiful. It is also where my son dances which makes it even extra special.
I’m looking forward to their presentation of Cinderella this May. They also have a very exciting season lined up for next year. If you haven’t tried the ballet, you should. If you can’t get to Kansas City try a ballet near you. You’ll be glad you did.
