Sunshine Boulevard
Kaohsiung

Days are always sunshine with cozy winds from the sea on Cijin island.Walking under the sunshine and shadows of the palm trees along the Sunshine Boulevard will take your worries away and make you a pleasant day.The Sunshine Boulevard in Cijin is 280 meters long and 20 meters wide.It is built along the beach and goes directly to the Tunnel of Stars at the bottom of Cihoushan.There are no traffic on the boulevard, but only bikers and travelers taking a leisure walk.The white handrail and the first-aid station on the boulevard have become the most distinctive features of the area.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
