Re: The New 7 Wonders
I don't have seven but i'd like to nominate Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
I visited a few years back and its a truly breathtaking experience - im not really into 'architecture' as such but this was something else.
Its an amazing contrast to the horror of S-21 which was an interrogation/torture base for the Khmer Rouge based in an old disused school.
I also got some hoodoo 'curse' put on me by some scary 5 year old girl for not buying her guidebook..but thats a whole other story.
An amazing, fragile country.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
