The United States, which already has 23 World Heritage inscriptions, was not among them, but all continents save Australia and Antarctica were represented.
Individual countries with newly inscribed cultural sites include:
Antigua Naval Dockyard, built with slave labor by the British Navy, and related archeological sites
Zuojiang Huashan rock art cultural landscape, 38 sites depicting ceremonies of the vanished Luoyue culture
Two other cultural sites span multiple nations.
The architecture of Le Corbusier, recognized as “an outstanding contribution to the Modern movement,” includes 17 works in Argentina, Belgium, France, Germany, India, Japan and Switzerland.
Thirty cemeteries in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro and Serbia featuring distinctive limestone tombstones known as stećci also joined the World Heritage List as a single entry.
The former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan share a new World Heritage designation for the Western Tien-Shan, one of the world’s largest mountain ranges and a biodiversity hot spot.
Hubei Shennongjia, two forested regions in central China with many rare animal species
Lut Desert, home to windswept dunes with striking ridges
Revillagigedo Archipelago, a haven for manta rays and other marine life in the Eastern Pacific
Sanganeb Marine National Park, an atoll in the Red Sea, and Dungonab Bay and Mukkawar Island Marine National Park, hailed for reefs, beaches, dugongs and other creatures.
Three new World Heritage inscriptions made the list for both cultural and natural reasons.
Chad’s Ennedi Massif, including rock art and spectacular formations, and India’s Khangchendzonga National Park, a physically diverse region in Sikkim with many sacred sites, earned this dual recognition.
The Ahwar of southern Iraq — three archeological sites and four wetland areas — was also cited for being “a refuge of biodiversity” as well as hosting remains of Mesopotamian cities.
UNESCO officials also removed one site from the List of World Heritage in Danger, but added nine more during their recent meeting in Istanbul.
While the historical monuments in Mtskheta, Georgia, are no longer considered threatened, these sites face uncertain futures:
Historic Center of Shakhrisabz, a 2,000-year-old cultural enclave on the Silk Road, threatened by new tourist infrastructure and the destruction of medieval neighborhoods.
All five World Heritage sites, including the Roman ruins of Leptis Magna and the prehistoric cave paintings of Tadrat Acacus, already damaged by armed groups.
Travel insurance was included in the price of the trip.
Road Scholar contracted out the trip to a tour operator in Orlando, which provided the vans and tour guides.
On the last stop of our trip before heading to the Miami airport, at Biscayne National Park in Homestead, we were advised by our guides that it was OK to leave our carry-ons in the van.
National Park police investigated and reported to us that there were no security cameras in the parking lot.
A representative apologized for the incident and gave me a case number.
A closer look at Road Scholar’s terms suggests that it isn’t liable.
According to its registration and program policies on its website, Road Scholar neither owns nor operates any of the suppliers it works with; they are independent contractors.
 Road Scholar is “not responsible for any injury, loss, or damage to person or property” — in other words, the fine print lets the organization off the hook.
 Road Scholar sold you an insurance policy through Aon that, it promises, is “an exceptional benefit and value.”
 you were cornered between a restrictive travel insurance policy and a tour operator that only viewed itself as a middleman.
After we contacted Road Scholar on your behalf, the organization called you and offered to cut you a check for $1,000, which covers the cost of your lost items and your insurance.
From 18,000 to 10,000 B. C., long before Stonehenge, before the pyramids, before metalworking and before farming — back when mammoths and saber-toothed cats still roamed the Earth — prehistoric people painted deep inside these limestone caverns.
 a “copy cave,” the impressive Lascaux II, allows visitors to see the reindeer, horses and bulls of Lascaux, painstakingly reproduced by top artists using the same dyes, tools and techniques their predecessors did 15,000 years ago.
When I first heard a guide call the Lascaux caves the “Sistine Chapel of the prehistoric world,” I thought, “Promotional hyperbole.”
Even if you’re not a connoisseur of Cro-Magnon culture, you’ll dig this cave — the last one in France with prehistoric multicolored (polychrome) paintings still open to the public.
Font-de-Gaume contains 15,000-year-old paintings of 230 animals, including many red-and-black bison painted with a moving sensitivity — often in elegant motion.
 the cave widens, sunlight pours in and you emerge — like lost creatures seeking daylight — into a lush canyon.
The nearby Postojna caves are Slovenia’s single most popular tourist attraction.
Postojna lacks Skocjan’s spectacular, massive-cavern finale, but the formations at Postojna are slightly more abundant, varied and colorful, with stalagmites and stalactites as tall as 100 feet.
Here, an aquarium houses the strange, pale-pink, salamander-like “human fish,” a cave-dwelling creature that is celebrated as a sort of national mascot in Slovenia.
