The New Flood


A long time ago, there is a story about a flood among the Tsou people. At that time, a wise crab stood out and resolved the blood caused by a weird eel. Then after thousand years, the blood happens again and is caused by a mutated eel. At this time, the eel is caused by the industry civilization and the history of immigration. Can we be as wise as the crab to solve the new blood?
