Taiwan

The traditional oil-paper umbrella is made with wooden frames and hand-colored paper polished with candlenut tree oil. The traditional technique of making oil-paper umbrella in the Meinong District came to Taiwan from Guangdong Province during the Japanese rule. During its prime years, the number of umbrellas produced annually could go over 20,000. After the 1960s, however, more durable modern umbrellas took over. Guang Jin Sheng is one of the most popular makers of oil-paper umbrellas. Over the years, the owners of the brand have insisted on staying in the business even during the worst time, and thanks to the thriving tourist industry and media reports, the oil-paper umbrella has regained popularity, this time as delicate souvenirs or gifts.

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.
