Street photos of Xiamen, China

I went to Xiamen to look for the birth parents of my friend Claire Breed. She was adopted from a village on the edge of Xiamen, China. I found the foster parent who had taken care of Claire for a year before she gave her up to the orphanage. 

After my searching mission in the small village, I went back to the city. I stayed in a very touristy area but was surprised to find the authenticity and originality of old Xiamen behind those malls and markets.
