Yesterday, in Lisbon, 07/07/07, the new 7 wonders of the world were named. I've been waiting to know the results impatiently! People from around the world voted online, through phone and via SMS. The Giza Pyramids gets a by and is still considered a wonder due to the fact that it's the only remaining wonder from the first lot. Well, here they are in random order:
Chichén Itzá, Mexico
Christ Redeemer, Brazil
The Great Wall, China
Machu Picchu, Peru
The Roman Colloseum, Italy
The Taj Mahal, India
Well how about that? That is a rather fine list isn't it? I might have chosen the Kremlin instead of the Redeemer myself, but still, It does deserve to be there. I know very little of the Machu Picchu and I'll definatly read more about it. Congratulations are in order to my Jordanian brothers, Alpetra is amazing and is well deserving of its place.
Runners up included the Acropolis, Statues of Easter Island, the Statue of Liberty and Sydney's Opera House.
