Another slow start to the day. We are finding the further we go the harder it is to get up and going in the morning. We left our hotel and headed to the airport to collect our hire car. That was interesting. I'd ordered a Jeep Grand Cherokee but when we went to collect it the guy wanted to give us a van. I told him no so he brought a GMC SUV - not what I ordered but he was so arrogant I couldn't be bothered arguing. At least it wasn't a van - bloody hell, like I was going to drive a van the first time in the US. Because he parked it right in front of where he was standing he was watching us while we were getting settled which was really unnerving. I wanted to have time to get used to things, find out where the switches were etc and he just kept watching - tool. Not a great start to the car hiring but it got better. Because I just wanted to get away from the guy we took off. We made it out of the airport with Dylan's navigation skills and I only got honked at once - not bad I thought. I wasn't sure where we were going and that was probably the most disconcerting thing ever. We missed our turn and it was like we were doing blockies but I'm sure we weren't. We finally made it on to the freeway and we were off. Because someone (whom I won't mention their name) didn't get up until late had missed breakfast, he wanted me to get off the freeway to buy something to eat. Great!!! We stopped at a Wawa Service Station which was an experience in itself. The boys were in there element with their tight budget for food, they managed to buy a hot dog for $3 and a massive soda for $1.70, you should have seen the eyes light up. Anyway after all the food excitement, I managed to get back on the freeway and on our way to Lancaster. We went around Baltimore which was a very industrious port, lots of shipping boats, containers etc. Once we got off the freeway and into the country the scenery was just beautiful and like what you see in all the movies. Bit hard to concentrate while driving so I asked Liam to take photos - there are so many and I deleted a heap but I just didn't have time to delete more so I apologise for how many there are, he just wanted to capture as much as he could for me. We made it to our hotel which was just beautiful and the boys just loved it. We found out there was an outlet mall nearby so decided to go and have a look. Like everything it was big as and we only managed a hand full of stores - we all agreed to do the one in New York. We then came back to the room and went to a theatre that showed a film about the Amish which was interesting. The children aren't baptised when young but they are baptised when teenagers as its their choice if they want to live the Amish life for the rest of their lives. They are allowed to go out and experience the real world or as they call it the English world. Everyone apart from the Amish is English, no matter where we come from. Once they choose to stay in the Amish life they are baptised and married and that is the way they live until the day they die. After the theatre show we went on a buggy ride with Levi, our Amish driver. It was a nice time of the day to meander through the countryside. Liam was lucky enough to ride in the front. Unfortunately Dylan and I were in the back with an American who had visited Australia and that's all she wanted to talk about so we didn't get a chance to listen to Levi. For tea we went to Millers which is a smorgasbord. The boys were in heaven although felt sick by the end of tea from so many visits for fried chicken, chips etc. I had a cocktail called Intercourse (yes I'm serious), named after a nearby town. Dylan drove us there and back which he loved and could understand what I was saying about different things when driving on the other side of the road. We discovered that if you come up to a red light you don't need to wait for it to change, if you are free to go then you can. We then went home to bed and a reasonably early night. I think by now we were starting to develop a better sleeping patter, thank goodness.
