    Sturgis, Michigan

    May 18, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Our kind of town
    Chicago is . . .

    Gosh, we loved this city.

    We were only here for five years but we have so many wonderful memories of this place.

    For old times sake, we rode up to the Skydeck on the 103rd floor of the Sears Tower passing the 21st floor on the way up - Denny's office was on the 21st floor. (I know it's the Willis Tower but we don't acknowledge that fact. In our hearts it will always be the Sears Tower.)

    Somewhere over our heads above the 110th floor is the topping off beam with our names on it. Sears management brought the beam down to headquarters and invited employees to sign it, which Denny did .

    Denny and Donna Byrne - Skokie, Illinois.

    As we exited the building, the skies opened up and poured down torrential rain. We drove around the Loop a bit and headed out of town. The plan was to stop at the Indiana Dunes National Park but the rain followed us into Indiana so we pushed on to Sturgis, Michigan.

    Denny found the Nats/Cubs game on TV. 😀

    Thank you Chicago.
    Thank you Sandy and Jack.
    Thank you Barb.
    Thank you Sharon and Jack.

    Shipshewana, Indiana

    October 6, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    More trip research brought us to this small Amish community with a population of 658. The rural area is predominantly Amish farms. The town is beautifully decorated for Fall and there are as many Amish buggies as there are vehicles on the streets. This is in sharp contrast to the city of Cleveland which we drove through earlier in the day! We're staying in a nice inn that is decorated in Amish style, complete with quilts on the beds. We went to a local restaurant for dinner and enjoyed a typical Amish meal. It's been an interesting experience.Read more

    Amish

    November 8, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 5 °C

    Heute fahre ich bei sonnigem Wetter über asphaltierte Landstraßen nach Angola.
    Auf den ersten Kilometern sehe ich noch viele amische Höfe. Man erkennt sie daran, daß die typischen, kastenförmigen Kutschen davor geparkt sind und an der Wäsche auf der Leine. Die Amischen haben keinen Stromanschluss und folglich auch keinen Wäschetrockner. An einigen Höfen sehe ich jedoch Photovoltaikanlagen, diese sind offenbar erlaubt.Read more

    Shipshewana

    November 7, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    Eine angenehme Fahrt in der Sonne über Landstraßen und Radwege bringt mich nach Shipshewana.
    Hier siedeln die Amischen. Oft sieht man ihre Kutschen, von einem einzelnen Pferd in flottem Trab gezogen. Ihre Hufe haben eine deutliche Mulde in den Straßenbelag gegraben.Read more
