After lots of hype and global voting the new seven wonders of the world were announced last Friday in Lisbon. They are:
- The Great Wall, China.
- Petra, Jordan.
- Christ Redeemer, Brazil
- Machu Picchu, Peru
- Taj Mahal, India
- Roman Colosseum, Italy
-Chichén Itzá, Mexico
I voted some time last year, so I can't remember exactly what my choices were but they did include many of those listed above.

Of the original seven wonders only the Pyramids in Egypt still stand today. The original wonders were based on guide-books popular among Hellenic sight-seers and only included works located around the Mediterranean rim.
