Visiting the Amish

I had an awesome weekend. It was wonderful hanging out with my sisters, eating junk food, watching movies. But even with just one extra day off, I have so many projects I want to work on.

Reading novels is one of my favorite things to do when I’m tired of working. And I love reading about the Amish. To be Amish means you are living differently than most other Americans. Amish live in communities, they do not have electricity, their main means of communication is horse and buggy, and mostly they farm. From the novels I’ve read, they love to cook country cooking, and are never stingy when it comes to sweets. And just so you know, I didn’t add a picture because they do not like having photographs taken.

If going back to this kind of simple life appeals to you, want to visit Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Here you can take rides in their horse and buggies. There are Amish homes and farms you can take tours of so you can find out more about their way of life. You can visit their markets and buy anything from fine quilts to homemade baked goods and jellies. They have all kinds of ways you can sample their food. They even have a play that you can attend to find out more about their way of life.

Please let me know if you are interested in taking a trip like this. I would love to help you plan something like this.
