Shuangyuan Bridge
Taiwan

The Shuangyuan Bridge was rebuilt in 2011. It crosses the Gaoping Stream and connects to the Linyuan District in Kaohsiung City and Sinyuan Township in Pingtung County. The original bridge had a steel rigid frame, but it was damaged when Typhoon Morakot hit Taiwan in 2009. The current one has 19 bridge piers with a depth of 68 meters, greatly adding to the bridge’s size and strength against flooding, strong wind, or other natural threats. Something noticeable are the oceanic designs that have been added to the sides of the bridge.

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.
