UNESCO is ready to withdraw Lamu osland from the World Heritage List, if its inhabitants will continue to ruin what was the reason of inclusion of the island into the list - unique houses made from petrified corals, with their cool patios, numerous terrasses, beautifully carved doors. It seems that Heritage List status did not actually cheer the locals, as they constantly break the rules implied by UNESCO, in order to earn their dollars from (frequently irresponsilbe) tourism.
