The New Seven Wonders Of The World

Just landed in San Francisco to see that the results are in and the New 7 Wonders of the World have been announced.

Technology played a big role in the selection of these seven wonders. Roughly 100 million votes were cast by internet and cellphone SMS. The new seven wonders of the world were announced by New7Wonders a non-profit organization. The campaign to name the new wonders of the world began in 1999 by Swiss adventurer Bernard Weber. The new seven wonders of the world were announced in Portugal by such celebrities as Bipasha Basu, Ben Kingsley,Bertrand Piccard & Hillary Swank. So which wonders made it onto the new list? Below are the new Seven Wonders of the World:

Chichén Itzá, Mexico
Christ Redeemer, Brazil
The Great Wall, China
Machu Picchu, Peru
Petra, Jordan
The Roman Colloseum, Italy
The Taj Mahal, India

It is interesting to note that some of the the candidates that were nominated but didn’t make it to the top seven included the Eiffel Tower, Syndey Opera House, Pyramids of Giza, and Statue of Liberty. For more information click here. Its interesting that 6 out of the 7 in the list happen to be in developing countries. The only exception is the Roman Colloseum in Italy. Yours truly has visited all the new 7 wonders of the world.
