Tehuacán-Cuicatlán Valley (Mexico) Deferral on cultural criteria
Thimlich Ohinga Archaeological Site (Kenya) Inscribe
Khor Dubai (United Arab Emirates) Not Inscribe

Khor Dubai (United Arab Emirates) Not Inscribe

Nice to see that ICOMOS cannot be bought. I am curious how the committee will handle this recommendation.

I am happy about this nomination as with any success stories from Africa. I wish we had more of these.

Not withstanding the likely overturned nominations 2018 is interesting for:
- No single vineyards, cathedrals, palaces, castles, etc.
- No country with two inscriptions . . .
- Indigenous heritage
- If at first you don't succeed, try 3 more times . . . France . . .

I think 2018 is the first year in which no new countries will get their first inscription either.

I wonder whether anyone of our community has been there already. Seems very much off the beaten track.

I have checked the connection First Inscriptions.
https://www.worldheritagesite.org/connection/First+inscriptions
Allan is indeed right. Every year since 1978 there was at least one first inscription for a member state. This year there are even no candidates for receiving their first inscription. In 2019 Monaco and Rwanda will be such candidates.

We have got a connection for that too:
https://www.worldheritagesite.org/connection/Inscribed+at+third+attempt+or+more
I think Aleppo is that record with an inscription at the fifth attempt. Bolgar, Djoudj, Algier, Longobards and Skogskyrkogarden were all inscribed at the fourth attempt.

The size of Mont Saint Michel's new buffer zone is really impressive for cultural site!

winterkjm:
Naumburg Cathedral (Germany) No Recommendation

I really concern for this case, this maybe become a precedent case and a bad tactic by lobbying WHC to recognized its OUV first on the process to overturn "N" to be "D" or "R".

This is a good news. Maybe it's the right moment for Belize to work on a T list.
