But any definition of Asia or Europe (other than giving in, calling it all Eurasia, and drawing the boundary of Africa at the Suez canal) is going to be subjective and arguable. It's hard enough getting agreement on what counts as North America (is the boundary at the Panama Canal, or at the southern border of Mexico? And what about Greenland).
