    Sorry, Red, none of your last mentioning listed on the top 10.:( Actually both Rick and I do not quite agree with what the Travel channel selected for the top 10 man-made wonders in the world. We thought the same as Hucc's first post. To our surprise the answer is very different than what we thought. But it is interesting to know.........:grin

    Well do know that the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel is one of the Seven Engineering Wonders of the World. Atleast that's what their website says.
    But I have no idea what a "tic" is, anyone care to explain?

    Rob, good one on Vega,

    And Gitte.. Lake Powel is amazing.. the very first movie of The Planet Of The Apes, was filmed there..because it has this "other world" look to it.

    Ok Ok.... I believe you all got enough brain exercises for today. The right answer according to the Travel Channel last night's top 10 man-made wonders in the world are:

    10. Ice Hotel in Quebec
    9. Baha'i Gardens in Israel
    8. Crazy Horse Monument in S. Dakota
    7. Marrakkesh in Morocco
    6. Hoover Dam
    5. Great Wall of China
    4. Panama Canal
    3. Taj Mahal
    2. Petra in Jordan
    1. Las Vegas

    I have visited the Great Wall at least 8 times, Hoover Dam 4 times and Las Vegas countless times.:lol:lol I'm glad that I made a lot of contributions to the top 1 man made wonders in the world:grin

    Hope you all have a fun! Have to go back to work now:(

    Deb, You are very right about that Crazy Horse Monument. That is far from finish yet. I don't understand how could Travel channel chose that instead of Mount Rushmore????
