Not one of the 7 wonders is in one of the so called "developed" countries.
World’s new seven wonders chosen
The Times (London)
HISTORY was rewritten last night after about 100m people voted to name the seven new wonders of the world.
India’s Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China, Jordan’s Petra, Brazil’s statue of Christ Redeemer, Peru’s Machu Picchu, Mexico’s Chichen Itza pyramid and the Colosseum in Rome have now replaced the original wonders, most of which have long since vanished into the mists of time.
Greece’s Acropolis failed to make the final cut, but the Great Pyramid of Giza, the only one of the original wonders ancient of the world still standing, was assured of retaining its status in addition to the new seven after indignant Egyptian officials said it was a disgrace they had to compete.
