Siaolin Village Memorial Park
Taiwan

The Siaolin Village Memorial Park integrates respect for the dead, cultural history and ecological landscape, presenting to the world the importance of precaution against natural calamities. The park is located on the south of where Siaolin Village once was before Typhoon Morakot hit and destroyed it in the summer of 2009. The park has several sections, including Memorial Square, the Shrine, Road of Suffering, and Contemplation Bridge. One major spot is the 9-meter tall monument made with the rock washed downstream during the 2009 catastrophe. Moreover, 181 baby Taiwan cherries are planted in the park, representing the rebirth of the village and the people.

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.
