The Great Wall of China, Greece's Acropolis and Peru's Machu Picchu were leading contenders to be named among the new seven wonders of the world in a global poll whose results were to be announced Saturday.

Also in the top 10 after votes were cast by more than 90 million people are the Colosseum in Rome, India's Taj Mahal, Mexico's Chichen Itza pyramid, the Eiffel Tower, Easter Island, Brazil's Statue of Christ Redeemer and Jordan's Petra.

The winners were to be announced in Lisbon, Portugal.

What I found most interesting, is that the winners were announced yesterday on 07/07/07 - seven new world wonders announced. So it looks like that was yesterday so here are the winners:

  • Chichén Itzá, Mexico
  • Christ Redeemer, Brazil
  • The Great Wall, China
  • Machu Picchu, Peru
  • Petra, Jordan
  • The Roman Colloseum, Italy
  • The Taj Mahal, India

CONGRATULATIONS!

Also in the less-voted group are Cambodia's Angkor, Spain's Alhambra, Turkey's Hagia Sophia, Japan's Kiyomizu Temple, Russia's Kremlin and St. Basil's Cathedral, Germany's Neuschwanstein Castle, Britain's Stonehenge and Mali's Timbuktu.

Angor should have been on that list and not that silly little "Buddy-Christ the Redeemer" statue. Angor is a marvel of engineering and is as breathtaking from the air as it is from the ground.

More Brazilians have the ability to vote on the internet than Cambodians so I guess it is no surprise that something so un-wonderful made it on that list. This once again proves that democracy in action is little more than the majority settling for mediocrity.
