Wonders

I just visited the last remaining Wonder of the World (pyramids at Giza) and came upon this site yesterday: New Seven Wonders of the World

You can vote for new Wonders out of 20 candidates, such as Taj Mahal, Chichen Itza, Great Wall of China, Acropolis, Stonehenge, Easter Island Statues, etc.

Maybe I’m just old-fashioned, but I kind of like the pyramids being the only Wonder left… Or maybe it’s because I will feel an overwhelming urge to visit all of the new seven Wonders when I know I don’t have the money to do so.

    I think I would vote for Macchu Picchu as the new wonder, just because it is so old. I’ve been to Egypt too many years ago. I remember how the horns honked and, of course, the pyramids.

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
