Places of a Lifetime – World Wonders (according to Gary)

       These are man’s monumental creations, unquestionably respected and revered by anyone who visits. They are the most enduring legacies from past civilizations and define man’s quest to live in harmony with, to control, and to reach beyond what the planet earth provides and offers. If a visitor from another planet wanted to see the "best" of civilization’s products, we would take them to see these places. My list is almost identical to National Geographic’s except for one substitution.
 
        1. Taj Mahal, Agra, India
 
        2. Mesa Verde, Colorado, USA
 
        3. Vatican City
 
        4. Acropolis, Athens, Greece
 
        5. Petra, Jordan
 
        6. Machu Picchu, near Cusco, Peru
 
        7. Great Wall of China, extending over 3,000 miles across northern China
 
        8. Pyramids of Giza, Egypt
 
        9. Chichen Itza, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
 
        10. Angkor, near Siem Reap, Cambodia
