  • With the best will, where the store is located, I know somewhere in the Amish County. The bus made a stop, and the tour guide told something about the Amish people, that they speak Pennsylvania Dutch among themselves, and that they drive a car, but einspännige black coaches. The market had all sorts of souvenirs, fruits and vegetables. And next door, BB´s was a bakery. Women harvested Eggplant out of the box and there were also black coaches. A nice stop on the way to Washington.

  • The largest village Amish in the world (37,000 people). Culture very different from ours, but very interesting to know. Take the guided tour to better understand this culture.
