seven wonders: one down, six to go

This just in, hot off the presses:
- The Great Wall of China
- Petra in Jordan
- Brazil's statue of Christ the Redeemer
- Peru's Machu Picchu
- Mexico's Chichen Itza pyramid
- The Colosseum in Rome
- India's Taj Mahal
I've been to China and Mexico, but not to the Wall, or the Beijing area for that matter, and not to the Yucatan. The only one of these wonders I've seen is The Colosseum in Rome. I do think it odd that the Acropolis lost out to Brazil's statue of Christ the Redeemer.
