旅遊 | Amish farm tour & American host family

週末跟著學校教會組織去了一個兩天一夜的小旅程,分別去了 Lancaster, PA & York, PA 兩個城市。這兩個地方和我讀書的State College, PA約莫兩小時半的車程的地方,與其說是城市,不如說是其他鄉鎮更為貼切。

Amish people 是我一到Penn state就從學長姐口中得知的一個神秘的族群,他們過著相當原始純樸的生活,不用電不用網路不用3C產品不開車。這個資訊爆炸的社會,還有這麼一群人過著如此與眾不同的生活,當然要好好瞭解一下阿!!!

一到農場,便有解說員替我們導覽,這個農場比較像是Amish Museum是觀光客們觀光用,隨著導覽員的解說,我進入了Amish的家。導覽阿姨說,房子內的擺設是好幾十年前裝飾的,但跟她現在自己家裡的幾乎一樣,彷彿進入時空隧道 Everything changes, except Amish people.

簡單整理 tour 的重點:

  • life style:原始簡樸、自給自足,他們不開車,所以交通工具是馬車和卡打掐(腳踏車)
