World Heritage Sites update

Updating my list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites that I've visited. Last time I looked in 2012 the list had increased to 944. It's since been increased to 1073.

So: 45 so far, worldwide.As Iguaçu National Park is listed under both Argentina and Brazil I'm counting it as one location, even though I've been to both sides of the falls on either side of the border. And I really should do the Statue of Liberty some time, now that it's fully open to the public again.
