Young foreigners took a far-sighted view from the Yellow River Beach Park. The roaring river and fluttering migrant birds drew their attention. They watched the fallen leaves and enjoyed a slower pace of life when cycling along the bike path. In a research institute of the silt inkstone, the young tried molding and sculpture, wrestled with the mud and experienced the magic of art. When they came to an archaeological site for iron melting which could date back to the Han Dynasty in Guxing, they traced the forging technology and the industrial civilization in ancient China.
