The Abbot Of Wat Doi Pa Som, Samoeng, Thailand
Thailand

The Abbot Of Wat Doi Pa Som, and a woman getting her personalised guidance and tour around the compounds of the temple. The temple is located on a mountain top, with spectacular views in every direction, adding to the magnitude of the experience. The temple can only be reached by a steep mountain road, and walking the last bit up along some long stairs. The monks quarters are seen in the panoramic picture, and the temple itself can be seen on top of the stairs. This morning was very misty, and the view was limited to the nearby surroundings because of the morning fog.

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.
