Evidently a monument preservation org is staging a poll for the “new 7 wonders of the world.” They’ve narrowed it down to 21, and you can vote online for your favorite list.

All I have to say is, the Sydney Opera House??? I don’t think so. Not next to Stonehenge, Petra and Easter Island. I mean come on.

Though I’m old-fashioned, still sorry that I’ll never know what the hanging gardens of Bavel really looked like.

In any case, the 21 finalists for the New Seven Wonders of the World, alphabetically:

1 Acropolis, Athens, Greece

2 Alhambra, Granada, Spain

3 Angkor Wat temple, Cambodia

4 Chichen Itza Aztec site, Yucatan, Mexico

5 Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

6 Colosseum, Rome

7 Easter Island Statues, Chile

8 Eiffel Tower, Paris

9 Great Wall, China

10 Hagia Sophia church, Istanbul, Turkey

11 Kyomizu Temple, Kyoto, Japan
