New 7 Wonders of the World

Postby Tiberius Dionysius Draco on Sat Jan 07, 2006 7:29 pm

Salvete Romani,

we all know the ancient World Wonders, but there's only one of them left (the Pyramids of Gizeh). So a campaign has been set up to choose seven new world wonders.

You can find the list to choose from on this site: www.n7w.com

I kinda like most of the buildings chosen in the list, though I do wonder why the Sydney Opera house and the Statue of Liberty are among them.

Valete,
