Also we hadn't experience in taking interviews, contacts with people, which are elder than us and very well-known in our region. We couldn't meet the people, who were interesting to us, but during the project we had divided duties in our command. We had acquired very valuable form of work - collective form, when we helped each other with advices and acts.
