Join the author on a personal journey to the Seven Natural Wonders of the world and to the Seven Man-made Wonders - Natural Wonders: Amazonia. Angel Falls. Ayers Rock. Blue Grotto. Grand Canyon and More. Rainbow Bridge. Victoria Falls. Man-made Wonders: Crazy Horse. Empire State Building. Golden Gate Bridge. Great Wall of China. Machu Picchu. Petra. Taj Mahal. Throughout my life I have been intrigued by the Wonders of the World. Commonly there are seven listed wonders each in the categories of ancient, man-made, and natural. Of the seven ancient wonders only the Great Pyramid in Egypt still remains. After graduating from veterinary school I visited many of the world's wonders and marveled at their beauty. And I came away realizing how small and universal the world really is. My stories reveal what I saw and as importantly, what I learned as a world traveler - that basically most people are good and want the same thing - to be happy, healthy, and to be treated decently and fairly. Another important lesson I gained was how to recognize and appreciate intelligence and greatness. These qualities are found in people willing to journey outside the ordinary to visualize the wonders within themselves and the world. In other word, people of vision. These people can be discovered anywhere from lowly dirt floor huts to majestic granite walled cathedrals. They may be seen cradling a baby, crafting an art piece, playing a song, planting a flower, or holding an animal. Albert Einstein wrote, "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious." So join me in this insightful journey to the Wonders of the World. Dr. Alan B. Cunningham is one of twenty worldwide veterinarians selected to participate in the Medical Curriculum for Professionals Program, leading to a Doctor of Medicine Degree at the University of Health Sciences Antigua. After graduating from medical school, he will be providing medical and veterinary services to rural and medically und
