Xiaolin Memorial Park
Taiwan

Completed in 2012, Xiaolin Memorial Park is located in Jiasian District, covering an area of approximately 1.7 hectares, offering villagers and visitors a venue to pay tribute and commemorate the 462 victims of the landslides resulted form the heavy rain caused by Typhoon Morakot. Xiaolin Memorial Park is planned under five aspects of culture and history, ecology and landscape, transportation, disaster memory and sustainable operation. The park includes a memorial plaza, an ancestral shrine, a path with both sides engraved the names of the deceased, a tower, a meditation bridge and a nine-meter-high monument piled by stones, etc. The park overlooks the remains of Siaolin Village in 500 meters away, hoping to empower villagers with renewal and reconstruction as they pay tribute to the dead.

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.
