The Amish in Wisconsin

I've been to Wisconsin number of times and have always been fascinated by the Amish. Why? Maybe because they are so different from me, from my life, and I admire and respect their dedication to their culture, to the simplicity of their lives.

Make sure you also click on the other links in the website - very informative and interesting!
