Yueguang Mountain, meaning the mountain with moon light in Chinese, is the highest tip among the Meinong Mountains, with a height of 649 meters above sea level. It was so named because the shape of the curve at the top of the mountain was like a new moon. The Yueguang Tunnel, located at the west side of the Shuangfeng Mountain, was launched in February 2002, after four years of construction. Due to the topography in that area, the tunnel has undulating ground, which is uncommon in Taiwan. The tunnel has made it much easier for people traveling from Meinong to Jiasian, Liouguei, and Nanheng.
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.
