Encounters with the Amish

Here is a story from Laura about one of her training rides here in Lancaster: 

After all the stereotypes I've heard and all the first hand encounters  
I've had with the Amish and Mennonites of Lancaster nothing prepared  
me for what happened on our team training ride one Sunday afternoon.   
Approaching a small group of teen to early twenties guys presumably  
walking back from a morning of church, the guys respectfully  
acknowledged the guys on our team BUT when they came to me I was  
greeted not with a nod but with whistles! Catcalled by the Amish...who  
would have guessed?
