Just got back from my leisurely Sunday walk through downtown historic Strasburg, the borough where I’m living this summer.  Amish buggies go past my window on a regular basis;  horse manure lines the streets of stone and brick homes, many of which date from the 1700’s and 1800’s.

One of the buggies rolling down main street today was a bit different though–from far off, it looked like any other gray-topped Lancaster vehicle;  as it drew nearer, there was no missing the rock music pumping out of the on-board stereo, bass speakers kicking hard in the back.

For some young Amish, Sundays after church is cruising time, and the two lads inside were taking full advantage of their chance to ‘run around’ a bit.
