“Wonders” may be an overstatement for some of the subjects in this slide show but, for others, it is an understatement. Regardless, each of these buildings and sculptures gave me great pleasure as I studied them, considered their significance and watched others interact with them.
The materials used reflects the geology of a location, the structure, the age and the style, the history. It boggles my mind to think of how things like the Treasury at Petra were built and that people lived in that ancient city until the early 20th century. In fact, my guide's parents were the first generation of his family to move to the new city.
Today's slideshow takes you from various places in Chile, to multiple sites in Jordan, to Washington D.C., Innsbruck, Munich, San Cristobal, Mexico, London, Liverpool and Edinburgh, England.
Please enjoy. See you in 2012.
