宜蘭縣的冬山車站在2004年鐵路架高、重建,由大藏聯合建築事務所設計。以現代的鋼骨、薄膜材料交織出極具現代感的弧形曲線,遠處看便是一座大型的瓜棚,也順應當地冬山舊名「冬瓜山」,也是宜蘭最美的火車站,甚至有人認為是全台最美的火車站。

Dongshan train station in YiLan county was rebuilt due to elevation construction in 2004. It was designed by D.Z Architects & Associates. By using modern steel and film to weave curves that looks very modern. It looks like a giant melon-fram from a distance. And also respond to the original local name: Chinese watermelon mountain. It is regarded as the most beautiful traing station in Yi-Lan, or even in Taiwan.

This panorama was taken in Taiwan, Asia

This is an overview of 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.
