There’s no rhyme or reason to the selection of cards I have today, except that they are all UNESCO World Heritage sites.

This card shows Lake Baikal in Russia, the world’s oldest and deepest lake. It contains about 20% of the world’s unfrozen fresh surface water.

Another card with water, this time from another hemisphere:

This card comes from Castor in Australia. It shows the famous Sydney Opera House framed by the Sydney Harbor Bridge. This is one of the newer World Heritage Sites; it was completed in 1973 and became a WHS in 2007.

Finally, there is this multi-view of some World Heritage sites in Hildesheim, Germany. This card comes from antimi. She writes that the tall tree you can see in the upper right picture is actually a rose bush– a 1,000 year old rose bush! I can’t even keep a cactus alive; keeping a rose bush alive for 1,000 years seems almost impossible.

I’m really on a roll with these UNESCO sites. Hopefully I’ll have some more to share soon.
