But I think this applies to tourists in general. I hate summers in Lancaster, there are so many loud obnoxious tourists, mostly from New York, New Jersey, and Maryland. It's a pain to try and get anywhere outside of the city (Blue Ball, Intercourse, and Bird-in-Hand... real names of towns around here.
I have to drive through 2 of them just to get to my classes.) because people act like they've never seen farmland, a cow, or the Amish--which they may not have--before.
The thing that's really frustrating is people taking pictures of the Amish. They don't like that! Most people who visit know that they don't like to get their pictures taken, but they do it anyway. Respect their wishes while you're here, gah!
Anyway, solidarity Jan. Tourists--including myself, though I try not to be--are usually obnoxious and just plain in the way. Thus concludes the daily rant.
