Seven New Wonders...

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.
Link to the site: New Seven Wonders.

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.
