URGENT:Table Mountain Wonder Of The World

This is a post i just found on my drafts, I've even forgotten who to credit with the post, oh well, but its still relevant so i'm posting it now - South Africans have until July 7 to vote for Table Mountain in the global race to name the New 7 Wonders of Nature. The country’s most famous mountain needs an injection of votes to secure its spot as one of the world’s top wonders. The New7Wonders Foundation in Zurich, Switzerland announced in January 2009 that Table Mountain was one of 261 magnificent natural sites from 222 countries to have made it through to the second round in this global race to name the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Other iconic African natural sites to come through the first round include the Kalahari Desert, the Great Rift Valley, the Avenue of Baobabs, Lake Tanganyika, the Kafue National Park and Victoria Falls. The New 7 Wonders of Nature will be determined by votes from the public and South Africans and fans from outside of our borders can show their support for the Mother City’s majestic mountain by visiting and casting their vote. Voting to select the top 77 sites runs until July 7 this year. Thereafter a panel of experts will select the 21 finalists - these will be announced on July 21 when the third and final phase of voting will begin. The official New 7 Wonders of Nature will be revealed in 2011.
More than 1 billion votes are forecast. To cast your vote for Table Mountain visit Contact the Cableway on 021 424 0015 for information.

I should also tell you that we need to be in the Top 11 to qualify for the next round… and we are sitting at 29! Was does that tell you? EXACTLY - CLICK HERE with great urgency and CAST YOUR VOTE! And this is not just for Capetonians, this is for SOUTH AFRICA. Come on, gang! Get involved! Bottom pic was taken from a friend's of mine's roof terrace in the center of Cape Town.
