28 Finalists for Natural Wonders

The 28 competitors for the final phase of the competition for the 7 natural wonders have already been announced, during several posts we followed up on this topic. Reviewing I have realized that this topic entertained me not a little, I would have created a category as this is already my 12th post on the subject:

    1. Vote for 7 natural wonders
      In this post in January of 2008 I launched my 7 favorites in the Spanish speaking countries, of these only survive the Angel Falls. (1 7)
    2. As the 7 Natural Wonders Go Round, January 2008
      A month later I made a proposal according to the growth statistics, survive: El Salto del Angel, Grand Canyon, Galapagos and Iguazú. (4 7)
    3. What are the 7 natural wonders that will win
      On this date he spoke of the probable distribution of wonders if one opportunity were given per continent
      Asia: 3
      South America: 1
      Central America: 1
      North America: 1
      Europe: 1
    4. The population: a disadvantage in 7 natural wonders
      In this post he talked about the possibilities faced by the population by continent with Internet access.
      Asia would have 4, Europe 3, North America (not including Mexico) would have 2 and Latin America 1.
    5. 7 wonders, almost everything returns to normal
      Here I suggested 21 possible finalists, with 3 candidates from each continent. Of those I hit 7.
    6. In this post, the 11 / 11 / 11 the winners were published

    My Predictions

    A pity, but there are not enough quotas, barely
    We would wait for 2 posts in America. For now what a great achievement that have had candidates that we did not believe came to this point, it also gives us some regrets that were left behind; This is my prediction:

    In America:

    • Amazon
    • Grand Canyon

    In Europe:

    • Black forest

    In Asia:

    • Halong Bay
    • Puerto Princesa

    In Oceania:

    • Coral barrier

    In Africa:

    •   Kilimanjaro (if he gets enough votes)

    The new voting panel has now been improved, you must select the candidates by clicking on the green button.
