Tanzania UNESCO World Heritage Sites

UNESCO just finished their annual meeting and added 13 new sites to their list of 890. "The World Heritage List includes 890 properties forming part of the cultural and natural heritage which the World Heritage Committee considers as having outstanding universal value."

I just love the way that sounds. If you're having trouble deciding where to go on your next vacation this list is a great place to start. While none of the new sites are in Tanzania, I just had to give a "shout out" to this organization. I couldn't help but go back and remind myself which sites were already on the list:
Kilwa Kisiwani, Stone Town and the Kondoa Rock-Art sites are all cultural sites while the rest are natural. Aside from global recognition UNESCO has also donated thousands of dollars to protect Kilimanjaro and other precious natural resources of Tanzania.
