It was light rainy today, which was common in Chengdu. In the rain, the temples, which werebuilt to memory Libing, were as blear as two thousands years ago. In thosedays, Dayu finished the control-water system, Laozi was raised to the skies.Min mountain, however, was so high and the Min river was so long, and thestones deposited in the rivers blocked up the river way and caused floodwater.Libing, the mayor of Sichuanorganized the people to build Dujiangyan, a new control-water project. The hourhand of history pointed at BC 256, which was the Warring State Period.
How difficult to finish Dujiangyan? There was no huge axe of god Erlangor huge sinker of Mighty Magic Spirit, how to break the mountains? Fire! SoBaoping mountain, which a whole stone constituted, was opened a mouth by fireand water. How great Dujiangyan is? In the WW 2, Japan’s bombing planes vainlyattempted to destroy Dujiangyan but left only some sprays. How long didDujiangyan stand for? Great War was built up about 2000 years ago, which lostits defending functions recently. But Dujiangyan was still served to Chengdu plain now.
Every Chinese has Great Wall complex for it was a symbol of China. I wouldrather have Dujiangyan complex, because this system is not only a symbol butalso a water-controlled project serving the common people. So Libing, acivilian leader, is more influential than the Emperor Qin Shihuang.
This trip was ended, but the 17th CPC National Congress was just beguntoday. We would have a largo road when people were oriented. Dujiangyan water,People greater!
