Mali: Timbuktu – one of the new seven wonders of the world?

Timbuktu might become one of the new seven wonders of the world: “Reasons given for the need to create new Seven Wonders was that, the current ones are all gone with the exception of the pyramids of Giza. Thus, only few people could remember them.
Interestingly, Timbuktu in Mali is the only site in Africa that made it to the final 21. What can I say? I can only entreat you to vote for Timbuktu because I am an African in Africa. I have some symbiosis with Timbuktu, than any other site listed on their website,” writes Oluniyi David Ajao.
