More on the New 7 Wonders

For anyone who has managed to miss the New Seven Wonders, there's a short overview on the July Egypt Today website: "Once upon a time, a Greek travel journalist named Herodotus suggested the world’s very first ‘best of’ list, better known as the Seven Wonders of the World. Egypt was a double winner with the now-destroyed Lighthouse of Alexandria and the still-standing Pyramids of Giza. Fast-forward 2,500 years, and a Swiss filmmaker is pitting the world’s oldest standing wonder against 20 other heritage sites for a place among the ‘New 7 Wonders of the World.’ "
