Thanks for the great work on your website. I enjoyed browsing through it. I visited Ani as long ago as 1992!
Currently I am working on an article about the nomination of Ani Cultural Landscape as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2016. I was wondering: what's your opinion about that? Would it be a good thing for the conservation of Ani if it becomes a World Heritage Site?
And have you heard anything 'on the ground' about who (an observer from which country) from the Advisory Body ICOMOS will be visiting to assess the state of conservation of the site? (this should be happening somewhere around Oct/Nov 2015) They usually try to send someone that's not too biased.
