7, 8 or 14 Wonders of the World

So, yesterday, 07/07/07 (unfortunately not on 07:07), the “New 7 Wonders”, which could be voted for on the internet, have been published – not officially acknowledged by the Unesco, not undisputed, but… well, never mind. So we now have (or don’t have), besides the ancient wonders of the “world” – limited to the Mediterranean area and the Middle East, which was the world known in ancient Greece –, which are

  1. Hanging Gardens of Babylon
  2. Colossus of Rhodes
  3. Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus
  4. Lighthouse of Alexandria
  5. Great Pyramid of Giza
  6. Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
  7. Statue of Zeus at Olympia

also (=> 14) – or only (=> 7)

  1. Great Wall of China
  2. Petra, Jordan
  3. Christ the Redeemer statue, Brazil
  4. Machu Picchu, Peru
  5. Chichén Itzá, Mexico
  6. Roman Colosseum, Italy
  7. Taj Mahal, India

– including, by the way, just two of my seven votes, and the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany didn’t make it, “of course”, was apparently on the unrewarding 8th place – and, so Zahi Hawass doesn’t get mad, also (=>8) the honor candidate, the “eternal wonder”:

the only ancient wonder that still stands.

Think of it what you want, ‘t is a nice thing, somehow, anyway…

    Die “neuen” 7 Weltwunder sind ja faszinierend, aber wir finden auch, dass Schloss Neuschwanstein fehlt. Das wär doch was, wenn auch Deutschland bei den Weltwundern vertreten wäre.

    Nur gehört Neuschwanstein m.M.n. nicht in die Top 7 der Weltwunder…

  3. Die Christusstatue in Rio ,Taj Mahal, Indien kann man ja weg nehmen dafur Die Tempelanlage von Angkor in Kambodscha und Die Akropolis von Athen in Griechenland nehmen oder…..

    Hey, hier ist kein Pseudo-Chat, wo du dich mit dir selbst – oder ihr alle, die ihr denselben Internetzugang habt (eine Schulklasse bei der Hausaufgabensuche?) – unterhalten könnt. Weitere solche Kommentare werd ich nicht akzeptieren (und einige sind schon gelöscht).
