La Grotte Success

Less than a week ago I posted news that the Chauvet Cave Pont d'Arc in southern France was still awaiting UNESCO world heritage status after five years (CLICK). The good news is that the UNESCO committee of bureaucrats in Doha, Qatar, has finally got its collective finger out. Yes! Chauvet is now being called the "Prehistoric Sistine Chapel" (CLICK). For tourists there is even better news: a full-scale replica of the cavern with its 1,000 drawings is under construction nearby and will open to the public next year.
