Seven Wonders..

These are the three pyramids of Giza. They are the only items left from the original seven wonders of the world. They have been around for so long, nobody can work out how they were made. We still are in awe of them. So now somebody has decided that we need seven wonders that we can still see rather than just artists impressions, but get this, the Giza pyramids have to compete for a place in the list. Can you believe that the pyramids could get ousted by the Statue of Liberty (French, by the way), the Eiffel Tower or some other 19th century relic?

What are these people thinking? The pyramids are beating time almost. The sheer size, complexity of passages and wall paintings, and the mathematically correct proportions surely make the pyramids a certainty in any seven wonders listing, new or old.

Well, I have a contender. I give you Battersea Power Station, South London, England.
