Siaolin Village Memorial Park
Taiwan

The mudslide brought by Typhoon Morakot in 2009 instantly flooded over Siaolin Village and killed hundreds of villagers. The Siaolin Village Memorial Park was established in memory of the dead. The layout of the park followed that of the village. In addition to the Memorial Square, the shrine, and the Contemplation Bridge, there is the Road of Suffering. The names of the 462 villages who lost their lives in the typhoon are carved on the walls of the Road of Suffering. At the end of the road is a domed building that symbolizes the cycle, or transmigration of life. The building allows visitors to have a breathtaking view of the surroundings.

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.
