Amish

July 9th. We had lunch at a place called Patty's 1860 Settlement. It's a quaint little area that was, as the name implies, an 1860 settlement. They had several old log cabins that they converted to restaurants and shops. We then headed 30 miles north to Marion, KY. They have an Amish community there. I have never seen the Amish up close and personal. It's a strange religion to me. Almost like a cult. As a courtesy your not supposed to take pictures of their faces, but I couldn't resist a few times. We were wondering if the teenagers ever thought that maybe, someday they would be able to escape and experience the things most of us take for granted like cars, TV, electricity etc.

    Great pictures, Mark. Just don't get their faces
    or let them see you with a camera. They do get a little upset that the outside world does not respect their beliefs.
