Amsterdam, Jantar Mantar and Bikini Atoll stand out for me. I look forward to delving into the background on the Bikini Atoll one especially. Surprised that Iran was able to get 2 cultural sites inscribed in one session.
I guess it is time to do some research on some of the new additions I don't know much about at the moment.
I guess that the UK's Darwin proposal may finally have received a firm no. I didn't think it was really of outstanding universal value anyway.
It seems that Istanbul has survived for this year with out any reprimand, the halting of work on the Four Seasons Hotel seems to have done the trick for the time being http://www.todayszaman.com/tz-web/news-217711-101-unesco-keeps-istanbul-on-world-heri tage-list.html
Australia provided yet another frustration for me, I have seen the Hyde Park Barracks but didn't think it worthy of a visit (same as the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne). Oh well, I am sure I will be back Down Under soon, but I must admit neither really seem exceptional, maybe they will hold a surprise.
Time to start planning a return to a gloomy industrial corner of Wallonia!
