Seven Underground Wonders of the World





I've been very busy today! There's so much stuff to do. T-shirts, stickers, strange website additions. (All--and more--to come soon!) So I'm going to be a little lazy and point you in the direction of a very interesting post that I came across the other day.

The Seven Underground Wonders of the World (as listed on weburbanist.com) are pretty cool. (Though I'm not sure I agree with the sites they've chosen for their list. Where are the Terracotta Warriors? Or the Shadow City for that matter!)

Anyway, enjoy reading about the tunnels under Budapest (which I've visited) and Coober Pedy, which I'd love to see. And stay tuned, cause tomorrow's post will delve into the world of HUNGRY GHOSTS!

Oh I read a book called Opal Fire and they talk about Coober Pedy in it. It's an Aboriginal (i hope i spelled that right) phrase that means "white man in a hole" and its like the site for a mine I think

French Revolution, eh? Let me think. It's a little early in the morning for my brain to be working at top speed, but I'll give you a thought or two later!

Hey, mystery person, I know a lot about the FR,
1. It was a sort of war,
2. I forgot the rest. Sorry.
Kirsten, you are right up there with J. K. Rowling and Meg Cabot for my favorite authors. Also, not many other people can spin squirrels, empresses, and art into one story!

Hola, i hate spanish! I don't hate spanish itself at all infact i love it but my spanish class is terrible i have to listen to 2 Hours of spanish a week!!!!!!! sigh hey theatre you probably have had to present your project by now but Napoleon was a big part of the revolution see if you can change your topic to something more interesting like woman in history (like elizabeth bathory, she was a real vampire) or joan de`arc who went and kicked some english butt, at age 14!!! (please still let me post this ananka) if you can only do the french rev talk about soething really unusual!!!!!!
