Star Of Wonder

I wonder, wonder, wonder, who wrote the book of love.  Vatsyayana author of the Kama Sutra said, “Love, when it is pure, has a revitalizing effect upon others, and in the presence of a truly loving person others grow and expand into a healthier state of being.  Without deep reverence for the beloved, such a refreshing stream cannot flow from the heart of the lover.”  I often wonder about the Seven Wonders of the World.  No, not the Seven Ancient Wonders, not the Colossus of Rhodes, or the Great Pyramid of Giza, or the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, or the Lighthouse of Alexandria, or the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, or the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, or the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus.  The Great Pyramid is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact and I wonder if I will ever get to see all of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.

I have already been to Rio de Janeiro where I saw Christ the Redeemer Statue.  It would be great to see the Great Wall of China some day.  How awesome would it be to go to Machu Picchu in Peru?   I guess the closest one for me would be to go to Chichén Itzá, a complex of Mayan ruins on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula.  I would really love to go see the Roman Colosseum one day and also the Taj Mahal in India.  I am unsure if I will ever go to the Petra in Jordan.
