Make sure you read all of the posts because there have been quite a few today. Matt and I are in an African Internet cafe watching BET in the middle of Lancaster, the supposed center of the Amish world. It's amazing how commercialized and diversified this city is.
Last night we camped in the backyard of an amazing couple. It was getting dark and we were getting worried about where we were going to stop. We came up to the door of the house and looked in to see them sleeping. We almost turned around but decided to ask them anyway. They invited us in, gave us showers, dinner, and other food, and gave us a history of the area. It was incredible.
Since I'm running out of time right now, I'll give a few of the highlights that have happened to me on the trip.
-We saw a pathetic car accident in a grocery store parking lot.
-I almost peed on a homeless guy in downtown Philly
-Matt was hitting on an 84 year old woman in Walmart
-The beautiful Pennsylvania countryside
-Seeing a young amish boy plowing his field with 6 horses and having him stare at us as much as we stared at him
That's all I can think of now and we gotta get going. And in case you're wondering, we haven't met any hot chicks yet. It would be interesting to see how many people that see us think we are gay. We try to maintain a decent air of masculinity, which is hard for us, and we make sure we don't follow each other too close.
Anyway, keep checking because we'll keep posting.
