Duona Suspension Bridge is located about 200 meters from the entrance to Yamei Valley, standing tall at 103 meters high and 232 meters in length. Its construction was completed during the Japanese Occupation period as an important roadway in the Maolin District. Standing on this towering bridge, visitors will be stunned by the magnificent view of the mountains and valleys. Duona Suspension Bridge also plays a vital role in local development. During old days, people would stand at the ends of the bridge to say goodbye to their departing family and friends. Duona Bridge is more than a transportation hub, it is a bridge of love.
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.
