Day 10- Lan-"kiss"-ter bound

Day 10- Lan-"kiss"-ter bound

 

Hiedy-hoe,
Leaving Laura and Kim's house felt like leaving for school. Laura was getting ready for her commute and we ate cereal while "the adults" got ready for thier "adult lives."
Early into our day Pual, on his way to work, stopped to ask about finances. We told him we were doing well and he went on his way.
Next came the Amish! I was so intrigued as a girl came past in a buggy being towed by a horse. We saw many more before stopping at the Fischer's fruit stand where we met Lydia, an older Amish woman. She cut us a deal on peaches and chocolate fry pie. After making small talk for a little while we dove into, what felt like, the heart of Amish country. Clothslines, buggies, little boys in hats, and large barns paved the way to Strasburg.
Strasburg was a touristy train town where they reach into your pockets snatch out all your money and give you an appetizer, calling it a rueben. On the bright side we did find some postcards before hoofing it out of town. On our way out Kim, our host from the night before, came roaring up on his motorcycle. He gave us some cash and bid us a fond farewell.
We took very few breaks because we were eager to make it to Lancaster. On arrival Maureen (Mo) treated us to a smoothly and let us take her car to town for a cheap movie (2.50). When we came home to her place we chatted about antiques be aide she was in the business and then took a quick nap before dinner. She topped off a super evening with a strong but tasty drink called a "Golden Cadillac." She said she wasn't a morning person and said her goodbyes asking us to wake her on our way out.

All in all a great day,
Levi

*thanks to the Grieser family for telling us we were pronouncing Lancaster wrong. Big smile.
