That’s what Adrian Mourby of The Independent on Sunday writes in an article titled “In the realm of the snake god…and the coati“. When it comes to waterfalls, Niagara’s nowhere says Mourby, who points out that:
“Today, you can also vote for Iguazú Falls as one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature, an international poll that is being organised by Swiss cultural enthusiast, Bernard Weber. There are currently 28 finalists and the results will be published on 11 November. When Weber ran his last poll, to find the New Seven Wonders of the World, the president of Brazil got his people out to elect the statue of Christ the Redeemer. I wouldn’t be surprised if the same thing happens with Iguazú. Having said that, Iguazú would get my vote.”
Although there is no British candidate in the New7Wonders of Nature campaign, Mourby’s Sindy article should certainly lead to an increase in UK voting for Iguazú Falls in particular and all 28 Finalists in general. “Sindy?” The Independent is a British national daily newspaper published in London and it is nicknamed the “Indy”, while the Sunday edition, The Independent on Sunday, is called the “Sindy”.
By the way, Mourby’s conclusion is one that everyone should note: “Iguazú is vast, wild and beautiful but it is also dangerous. Any force of nature needs to be treated with respect, this one more so than most.”
