Vat Souvannakhiri, Luang Prabang, Laos

Wat Souvanna Khiri was built in 1773 by Chao Kham Sattha. I believe he was a monk, but I am not sure, as it was not stated in the documents I researched. Anyway, he came from Xieng Khouang province . As a result, the sim of Wat Souvanna Khiri resembles those found in the Plain of Jars . It has a pair of gold columns and a double roof. 

One unique aspect about Wat Souvanna Khiri is that not all of its buildings are in the traditional Laotian style. Its monks living quarters is built in French colonial style. I am not sure whether this colonial-style building was intended as part of the wat, or was it built for other purposes, and somehow became the monks' living quarters.

Mer om 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.
