Amish Mowing

The Old Order Amish do not believe in using internal combustion engines so this young man was mowing behind mules. The next day I was talking with a local who lives next door to an Amish farm. He said they were good neighbors and didn't mind all of the tourists. There was an exception, though. They don't like having their pictures taken. "They especially don't like it when tourists pull off of the side of the road to take a picture of them plowing." I had my iPad with me, but then decided that maybe I wouldn't share this picture after all. Oops.
