Siaolin Elementary School
Taiwan

Established fifty years ago, Siaolin Elementary School is located 352 meters above sea level. Its location and infrequent contact with the outside world have made the students maintain a simpler way of life. This has also enabled the Taiwanese Plains Aborigines to preserve their ceremonies and festivals, providing a valuable cultural resource for the people of Taiwan. Some of the school’s facilities have the marks of Taiwanese Plains Aborigines culture, such as a ceramic totem, an art exhibition wall, and a tower. These facilities were built in order to pass down the traditions of the Taiwanese Plains Aborigines.

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.
