Hi Prim girls,
Last week my brother and family came on vacation to stay with me for a week. We visited some historical places here in VA, DC and Pennsylvania. It was their first visit since we moved to VA and I want to share with them some places that I enjoyed in the area. When I visited PA for the first time in 2006 , my cousin showed me Lancaster Area and The Amish Village and I loved that place. The area had the most beautiful lands that I see in my entire life. And I want to give my nieces the same experience that I had 4 years ago when I see the Amish people for the first time. For me, it was a remarkable experience in my life. In that trip I realize that we can live with less that I had and be extremely happy as well.
I admire how the Amish live a simple life, making their chores without modern conveniences and they live happy and grateful with the things that they had.
And we are living pending the electricity, cars, cable, phones, specific brands and our kids pending of electronic games, internet, cel phones and things like that and sometimes we think that our world is finishing when we did not had one of them. We need to learn so much from them. If we live simple life less prejudice we will have. My admiration and respect for them.
In The Amish Village, they make an effort to show us the authentic detail of the everyday life of this gentle people. House dates back to 1840 furnished with authentic Amish furniture and things like crocks, quilts, clothes, etc. In the village you will find a Spring house, Operating smokehouse, Blacksmith shop, Schoolhouse, Livestock, Windmill Operating Water wheel and gift shops.
If you are planning a trip to Lancaster you need to see this place. I will leave you with this though that I found in the Schoolhouse.....
Hope you enjoy this trip to The Amish Village.
Bye, bye and see you soon,
