The New 7 Wonders

A favourite of school teachers is to get students to name the 7 wonders of the World.
Without cheating i would get the Great Pyramid, Hanging Gardens of Babylon and the Zeus Statue and then be forced to reach for Google.
Whether you can reel them off from memory or not is soon to become redundant because the search for the new 7 Wonders is reaching its conclusion.
We are down to the final 21 and scanning the list here proves to me that i can add not knowing some of the modern wonders to not knowing some of the ancient wonders.
Tough choice to get down to 7 but i plumped for:

Christ Redeemer (Brazil),
The Roman Colosseum (Italy),
Statues of Easter Island,
The Eiffel Tower (France),
The Great Wall of China (China)
The Statue of Liberty (U.S.A.),
The Taj Mahal (India)
