5TH WONDER – CHRIST THE REDEEMER – RIO, BRAZIL
On Saturday 13 September, 2014, Julie Woods and Ron Esplin headed off on the final part of their dream to finish off the 7 Wonders of the World! Beginning in 2009, on the way home from Louis Braille’s 200th birthday bash in Paris, Julie and Ron returned home through Petra in Jordan, their first wonder of the world. After finding out what the other six were, Julie and Ron continued their quest to see all 7 Wonders! The Great Wall of China in 2011, the Coliseum in Rome in 2012 and the Taj Mahal in India in 2013.
The remaining three wonders are all in the Americas, with Christ the Redeemer and Machu Picchu being in South America and Chichin Itza in Central America.
