The trip to Amish market
Some impressions from the trip to the amish market
The first few days in state college is great. One week after our arrival, on July 22, we went to a local market set up by the Amish, together with Mr.Liu and several guides to admire the senery here in the countryside and taste their special culture as well.
It took almost an hour to get to the market, the trip is not so boring, however, for we all enjoyed the beautiful landscape along the way, which is so different from that in China. Here is a photogragh when we overlooked the whole town of state college on a hill at departure.
The local market is very interesting, most Amishs came here on their carriage, dressed in unique clothes and selling agriculture products or other commodities. We found all kinds of small items there, many of which are from China. There are also exciting auctions in the houses next to the market. But to be honest, what impressed me the most is the special living style of the Amish, it is incredible that in U.S there are still someone living without electric equipments and farming by themselves.
We had our lunch near the market and visit a cloth shop then.
Anyway, this trip is a good start, I think we will surely have a great time learning and visiting here in the three weeks later.
