The German part of the Wadden Sea has been extended too:

If Le Corbusier and the Alpine pre-historic villages get approved too, Germany could get home this year with 5 new/extended sites...

Nice article here from the People's Daily preparing the Chinese for failure and more difficulties to come regarding inscriptions to the list (See above re the breast beating and introspection over the failure of Wudalianchi Lake). It is also very true!

This article is in the on line/English version.
It would be VERY interesting to know what the Chinese version of the People's Daily tells/told the people of China. Was this exact article "printed"?

Twitter gets there with the inclusion of Cultural Landscape of the Serra de Tramuntana in #Spain has just been inscribed on the #WorldHeritage List. Congratulations!
That one completly passed me by, I think I may have visited it some time before my 5th birthday, so don't think I will count it.

Well you have to tip your cap to them, it may not make the list more balanced but they certainly know how to bend the rules to their advantage.
Spain, Iran and Italy, again have similar success, when was the last time none of these had a site inscribed?

They just say Yes to everything now! So far for the restraint ICOMOS has shown

New #WorldHeritage site: Prehistoric Pile dwellings around the Alps (#Switzerland #Austria #France #Germany #Italy #Slovenia)

My, my Germany is doing well, just when I thought I could 'complete' it within a few years! It is expanding quicker than I can travel

Since Thailand left, everything goes

Maybe they were the ones blocking the approval of sites in the past... :-)

It is the end of a long day at work, so need some Twitter entertainment to keep me going.

Can't say I am keen on a return to Mallorca either

Selimiye Mosque and its social Complex in #Turkey have just been inscribed on the #WorldHeritage List. Congratulations!

A second site in the 'European part' of Turkey, hopefully good for planned over land trip to Istanbul.
