    Eric –

    Let us know the exact dates once you find out. I have work obligations on the 25th but I should be able to catch your lectures on any other day.

    Glad to see you got all the bugs ironed out on the blog too!

    Have a good time back in the US. Let me know when you’re next “passing through” the UK and I’ll buy you a cuppa tea 😀

    I will be in the Lancaster area and am wondering if you know of any Amish families who cook dinner for Englischers? A few years back there was such a lady but she no longer does it. I was just hoping to have some real good Amish food when I am visiting.
    Just visited the Amish community in Beeville TX. I hadn’t been there for over two years and was pleasantly surprised. There are many more houses then before. I saw more horses and a few head of cattle. Does anyone know how many people are living there now?
    Keep up the good work.

    Lancaster County Amish homestay

    Mahee, I usually recommend people to try to learn as much as they can about the Amish beforehand and then get to know someone first, form a genuine relationship with them, and then just ask if you can stay for a couple of days…if you have the time to do that it would probably be the best way with the added benefit of making friends. But there may also be short-term homestay situations in Lancaster, to be honest I am not sure and among my acquaintances I do not know anyone that does that. I am aware that there are options for having a meal in an Amish home and this may be searchable on the internet. Sorry my info is not better than that.

    I don’t know how much you have studied, but if you read up as much as you can beforehand, it will help you to understand aspects of Amish society when you come. Hope that is of some help, and best to you!
