Cremation Tower, Ubud
Indonesia

The community of Ubud in central Bali, Indonesia, was preparing for a very special event: the cremation ceremony for the mother of the royal family, who died in June 2011.

This huge ramp, completely made from bamboo was made to construct the cremation tower that you can see in the background. The tower is almost 30 meters high when it is finished and contains a life-size bull to carry the sarcophagus. The complete tower will then be carried by 1000 men to the cremation site and set aflame. The whole community was busy to prepare decorations for this big event which took place on August 6, 2011.

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.
