Road Rage

Apparently Amish culture holds that posing for a picture is a big no-no since it might encourage lack of humility. Yet Amish country is full of stores selling pictures of the Amish in the form of postcards, calendars and whatnot. Seems what us wacky 'English' do can't be controlled.

Including driving like fucking maniacs. I was quite appalled by how the natives whiz past horse-drawn buggies at top speed with a seeming disregard for the safety of the horse and buggy occupants. Now, mind you, since I don't live in Lancaster County, PA I'm not entirely clear on the rules regarding sharing the road with horse-drawn vehicles. Where I live, though, a double yellow line means do not pass.
