After seeing the Ege's turn up near the top of the number of sites visited chart I thought I would have a look for them

It seems they have their own website in Turkish and English.

I can't really work out if there is much content on the site, but it is nice to know there are other people out there ploughing the same furrow. And I guess there are plenty of other websites in different languages that chart other peoples adventures with World Heritage Sites.

So teşekkür ederim Mr Ege, you have given me a little more vocabulary to break out in the numerous shops, bars and restaurants where I live.

As we have plenty of people here who speak several languages other than English I was just wondering if there are other non English sites that people can recommend?
The Google Chrome/ Translate function now makes these a fairly easy thing to interact with, even if it is only to get 'gisted' information.

Going back to the Ege's site though I was surprised to see a number of World Heritage Symbols on the pages, especially as I know Els has got in trouble for even having a hand painted picture of it on the website (from Ethiopia if I recall). It features as the front cover of Mr Ege's book, so perhaps he has an association with UNESCO, or they are just not as strict on their policing in Turkish. It would certainly be nicer if they were a little more lenient on it's usage in regards to this site, but perhaps it is the start of a slippery slope in marketing terms for them.
