UNESCO Declares Okinawan Dance Intangible Heritage Asset

For today's Travel Photo Thursday, instead of a UNESCO World Heritage Castle, I've got something even better for you. How about some real-live, breathing, moving, dancing, beautiful World Heritage asset ? 

What I'm talking about here is showing off some human being-type assets. Dancing cultural assets !

Rather than me having to run around and almost fall off the seaside cliffs to show you the front and back of some cultural asset, like a castle, these treasures let me stay in one spot and turned around for me. Hah !

That's right, everybody. On Tuesday, November 16th, 2010 UNESCO added Okinawan Dance to their list as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

What I think everybody ought to do next is dig around and see if you have any UNESCO Intangible Heritage things you didn't know about in your neck of the woods.

Then put them on a blog and send a link to TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY  and show off your assets, too !
