The Independence Monument (Vimean Ekarech) in Phnom Penh
Cambodia

This panorama made near The Independence Monument (Vimean Ekarech) in Phnom Penh at the intersection of Norodom Blvd. and Sihanouk Blvd. The Independence Monument was inaugurated in Nowember 9, 1962 to celebrate Cambodia's independence from foreign rule. Renowned Cambodian architect, Vann Molyvann was the architect of the monument. The independence Monument now also serves as a monument to Cambodian's war dead. It is the site of colorful celebration and services on holidays such as Independence Day and Constitution Day. (Information from tourist's booklet). You can also see the smiling man who is looking in camera. He is a "took-took" driver and he is just took me and my wife to Killing Field for 8 dollars.

And you can see some extra information about this place on my site http://nashaplaneta/net

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.
