Amish Country, Pennsylvania

On our way out of Philadephia, made a stop in Lancaster, Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse, small towns where Amish people have some lands, sell their quilts and where you can get real cheap souvenirs... made in China...

The views are beautiful - green fields of corn, blue blue sky, and little farm houses scattered here and there.








Some mailboxes made by the Amish.













This is something you don't see everyday!! ;0

You share the road with buggies - so you have to be careful not to drive too fast!!

OK- are you SURE you didn't accidentally drive through southern Indiana? Because these could have been taken around here too! AWESOME!

I had to giggle at Intercourse, PA- well, because the name IS funny, and also because dh has a t-shirt that says "Virginia may be for lovers, but Pennsylvania has Intercourse." ROFL!
