New 7 Wonders of the World

Postby Old_Style » Tue Feb 27, 2007 6:32 am

I thought this was interesting. Wondering which seven you guys would pick.


http://www.new7wonders.com/index.php


Here's how I see it:
1. Stonehenge
2. Easter Island Statues
3. Great Wall of China
4. Colosseum of Rome
5. Pyramids of Giza - Can't argue with a classic. ;-D
6. Taj Mahal
7. Acropolis of Athens

The ones I'd choose (no particular order):

Stonehenge
Petra
Great Wall of China
Pyramids
Christ Redeemer
Machu Picchu
Easter Island Statues

Very difficult to pick 7, though...there's only 2 or 3 that I could cut from my shortlist straight away!

1. Angkor Wat
2. Chichen Itza
3. Colosseum
4. Great Wall
5. Pyramids
6. Acropolis

I filled this out like 5 months ago and forgot all about it.

Man, Stonehenge is one of the most disappointing and terribly unimpressive things I've ever seen in my travels. Maybe the build up for it was too much but it wouldn't smack into my top 100 wonders of the world.

1) Pyramids at Giza - this should easily be everyones #1
2) The Acropolis
3) The Colosseum
4) The Great Wall
5) Angkor Wat
6) Taj Majal
7) Kremlin, Hagia Sophia or Machu Picchu here.

:-? The Acropolis didn't make the orginal (ancient wonders list) which was just wonders located within the greek world.
