Neiweipi Cultural Park

The name "Neiwei" (Inner Enclosure) comes from earth or bamboo stockades known as "Wei" (Enclosure).  Built during the Qing Dynasty and used for protection against bandits, "Newei" was named when the County government stationed a garrison there. In 1920, although the Japanese changed the written form of "Neiwei", the pronunciation remained the same. Neiweipi used to be the largest wetland in Kaohsiung City. It played an important role in water storage and irrigation, and possessed its own unique wetland ecology.  The Neiweipi Cultural Park is situated on an area of 41 hectares in northern Kaohsiung. It includes the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, Sculpture Park, Artificial Lake, an outdoor music venue, the Firefly Conservation Area and the Marsh Wetlands Area.  It is the wetland park in Kaohsiung with the most artistic atmosphere.

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.
