i like your list. since you cant vote on the pyramyds of egypt, and its the undisputed ancient wonder of the world i would give this slot to the kremlin. i would probably replace stonehenge with the statues of easter island, on my list.

honorable mention: the sistine chapel. michaelangelo spent 4 years painting the ceiling and 7 years to do the altar wall. this would be somewhere in my top 7

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.

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.

Maybe they would be better off if they didn't run around cursing everyone... That seems like bad business...

You know, I'd feel better if they didn't too.

Its bad enough she somehow remembered my name/face 6 hours and hundreds of tourists later (she tried to get me to buy the guidebook and postcards on the way in) with out me being condemned to 'bad luck for rest of life'.

Im not particularly superstitious but I didn't like that one bit.
