Laomei Coast
Taiwan

位於北海岸石門鄉的老梅綠石槽海岸,為全台唯一特殊景觀,美不勝收。「綠石槽」形成的原因,是由於幾萬年前大屯火山爆發後,遺留海岸邊的火山礁岩在波浪長期的沖刷下,質地鬆軟的部份被侵蝕,留下較堅硬的部份而形成溝槽,每年冬天北部東北季風一起,濤天的浪花滋潤了石槽的岩面,也開始滋生綠色的石蓴、海髮絲等海藻,因此形成令人驚嘆不已的「綠石槽」海岸景觀,每年都會吸引了無數攝影愛好者駐足拍攝,惟此美景每年只出現在4、5月,錯過只有再等來年。

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.
