Facing current white walls and blue tiles, well-equipped play grounds and rows of even street lights, the Xinhua reporters recalled the vivid scenes of muddy roads, collapsed houses, and folks in desperation in 2014. They felt as if they had been in a state of Time Travel.

On November 30 this year, the rebuilders announced the restoration works of the Ludian earthquake are completed.
