Amish and Mennonites fascinate me. My fascination with them is the slow pace that they live. I have lived in close proximity to several Amish communities when I lived in northeast Missouri. It is refreshing to go back and visit the area. The photos in this post include one Mennonite girl named Christine. Christine worked in a local restaurant I had stopped in. She was delightful and quick to tell me she was not Amish, she was Mennonite. She said "I am Mennonite, we can have radio's, drive cars and go to movies."
I have found them all to be friendly and gracious and would recommend a trip to northeast Missouri if you are looking for a new adventure.
