New Seven Wonders

The New Seven Wonders of the world were announced last night. I agree for the most part, although the Pyramids definitely got the shaft. How could an original seven wonder not make
this list? Egypt was up in arms over the fact that the Pyramids were even on the nomination list. As for as it was concerned, their pride and joy should automatically have been named, while the world could vote for the other six.

Here is the list:

Chichen Itza
Machu Picchu
Statue of Christ Redeemer
Taj Mahal
Petra
The Colosseum
The Great Wall of China

kent - the pyramids were taken off the voting list and made a permanent "honorary" wonder - like a representative of the ancients in the new list.

I was hoping for Montreal's Olympic stadium to make the top seven... apparently it wasn't even on the list of nominees!

South America! Now I cant wait to go there to teach. Was just admiring some pictures of machu picchu...wish I'd gone there BEFORE it was designated a wonder.

Well, I guess now I would just have to wrestle my way through throngs of tourists.
