World Heritage Site Quest


There are a few days left of school. Eventually I will put up some thoughts about my year of teaching but that is not for today. The power is out so I don't have much time to write and it will and should take some time.

With the end of school also comes vacation time. It is really going to be a slapdash one at that. I will be going wherever the wind takes me all the while squeezing as much relaxation and enjoyment out of my meager savings as I can. My only guide will be trying to visit as many World Heritage Sites as possible. I am hoping that by the end of my service I will have visited all of them but would like to see at least one during this break. But even if I don't there is always 2011.

As an experiment I put up a poll on the side of the page for suggestions as to which Heritage Site I go to first. Think of it as a way to control me through cyber-democracy. It will be a bit of a distorted democracy because I think you can vote more than once but I am comfortable with the dedicated getting what they want out of my World Heritage Site quest. Any sort of response will surely get me to try my hardest to see that place first and then write about it.

For your consideration:

iSimangaliso Wetland Park

Cradle of Humankind
Cape Floristic Region
Kingdom of Mapungubwe
Richtersveld
Robben Island
Drakensberg
Vredefort crater

UNESCO - South Africa

Go for the coast, cool off. The Wetland Park looks nice.

I think this is easily the best choice. Might be my first stop.
