Ulleungdo's traditional house. In order to prevent snow and rainstorm, it is the outer wall which is built around a pillar of a temple and made of square pavement.
It is in the unique climatic conditions of Ulleungdo, which is snowy, that this form is born. When snow falls in the house, it can not get out and it is easy to be isolated. Even if the snow is piled up to the height of the person, it is easy to get out of the house because the passage is secured inside Udge. And when the snow falls a lot, the inner space of Udge becomes the activity space. This feature is characterized by dark interior of houses. However, the function of thermal insulation is excellent, so it is cool in summer and warm in winter. In Ugggi, a prosperous gate serves as a source of warmth and ventilation.
Today, as housing styles have been modernized, this form has virtually been banned. However, Udeggi is still in the Ulleungdo village, so you can see the prototype of Uegee. In reality, only two remain, and it is said that Ulleungdo is designated as a cultural asset.
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.
