4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Second: the less information. We decided to make Kangxi yinmahu, through the search, we find that there is little information, we have to go to the Pingluo television, Pingluo County Archives and travel agency, the result is naught, finally we got some information and pictures in the 'Lake Jinshui Real Estate Company', other information is needed to find by ourselves, this work is very hard, our five people worked separately, only on weekends to find. The protection of Kangxi yinmahu is not very good, there are several key facilities were destroyed, we can't take pictures, finally we got a few key pictures from a Chinese teacher, and we were very happy.
