Wonders of Olympics

It was a real wonder to watch the gala opening of the 29th Olympic Games in Beijing. The theme and the performances are so real that one could get lost easily in the rich history of China. The National Geographic Channel has shown a documentary on the fantastic efforts of the people of China and the technological support of the engineering genius of the western world in completing the main Olympic Stadium and other complexes well in time to stage such an unforgettable opening show. This is a perfect mixture of human ingenuity, science and technology and above all the will and effort of the Chinese people and the government to show what they can achieve.
We know there are 8 man-made ancient "Wonders", and 7 natural Wonders recognised by the world today. We hope the "BIRD NEST" will occupy the 9th place of man-made "Wonders" when the judges will look for a new "Wonder" of the world.
