I’ve been to the Christ Redeemer in Rio, Brazil.  Machu Picchu, Peru.  Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico.  Collosseum, Rome, Italy.  I can’t believe I turned down a trip to China to see the Great Wall when I was 16 because I had my first job and wanted to buy my first car.  My parents should have made me go! Argh! Live and learn.  As a parent I would have made my daughter go. Just sayin. 🙂
