Seven Wonders

I love to make lists. Eric quickly picked up on this feature of mine after we got married, and fortunately he humors me...and sometimes even joins in on the listmaking process. One of the most fun lists that we have recently put together is our very own "Seven Wonders of the World" list. It started when we tried to figure out exactly what are the seven wonders, and finding out that other than the seven ancient wonders of the world, there is really no consensus on what seven things would make a modern day list. So we made our own. The winners are: The Great Wall of China, the Grand Canyon, the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Great Barrier Reef (we like things starting with the word great, apparently), the migration of the Serengeti, Macchu Pichu, and Iguazu Falls of South America.

Then the other day I found out that there is an online CONTEST to determine the next "official" seven wonders of the world. I think it's a bit commercialized, but I voted none the less. I was a bit disappointed to not find many natural wonders on the list, but maybe that's what made the ancient wonders wonderful. The winners are announced 7/7/07. So hurry and vote now!
