I would be sorry to loose Shakhrisyabz as well.

Clyde's review of last year sums up my feelings too: it has always been a good place to get off the beaten track in Uzbekistan. And the Ak-Saray Palace is still there, isn't it?

Naumburg, Laon, Troyes, Toul, Limburg an der Lahn, Maria Laach, St. Etienne (Caen), Lincoln, York, Wells, Gloucester.... these just all need to wait another 20 years for cathedrals to come back in style :)

This year is the first one to see 5 African committee members (Uganda, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Burkina Faso and Angola). Their share at the WHC was increased in order to strengthen their involvement in the WHS procedures. I think we can already tell that this has succeeded; this year's WHC has shown the African representatives to pursue their own views and to fight other MSs for what they deem right. Often I do not concur with their views, yet I find this change a welcome now and hope it will lead to more success in African nominations.

I was amazed to see the African members fully backed such traditional and overrepresented sites like the European cathedrals, in the case of Naumburg. I'm not sure I saw a radical different approach from those countries.

But I share the hope that we will see more African nominations. The continent is underrepresented and there are still many more great sites that are worthy of a place on the List.
