Asia

Asia is the largest and most populous the of the planet's continents. "In general terms, Asia is bounded on the east by the Pacific Ocean on the south by the Indian Ocean and on the north by the Arctic Ocean. The western boundary with Europe is a historical and cultural construct, as there is no clear physical and geographical separation between them. The most commonly accepted boundaries place Asia to the east of the Suez Canal, the Ural River, and the Ural Mountains, and south of the Caucasus Mountains and the Caspian ian and Black Seas.' -- Wikipedia
