DaoXian, Hunan, China

I found some pictures of DaoXian China and thought I would share with you the area where Mia is currently living, the homeland of her birthparents.



Street Scene with Funeral Procession. The paper wreaths are marched in a line in the procession. This is the second picture I found of a funeral procession and both had these large paper wreaths. Not sure what they symbolize.

Oh my, that's how I pictured China to look like, but it isn't like that in Guangzhou.
