Two Sisters

In any city's back streets, there would always be family businesses that specialize in a certain trade. Shoes, paper making, goldsmithing, lantern making... But none as delightful as making traditional Chinese steamed buns. These two lovely ladies have been baking red bean buns, the family specialty, for nearly 80 years. They still sit out in the afternoon and watch the rest of the world go about their business everyday at 4'o clock with tea or with the day's newspaper.
