Indiscreet Window — The Mennonite Girl

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Mennonite girl grabing some snapshots of her visit to Antigua Guatemala

Here I captured a Mennonite girl as she was grabing some snapshots of her visit to La Antigua Guatemala. I believe this is the third or fourth time I make photos of Mennonites in Guatemala.

Can someone enlighten me with the difference between Mennonites and Amish?

  • Hi Rudy. I’m writing this from one of the largest Amish communities in the United States: Shipshewana, Indiana. I’m not an expert but I’ll share the little bit I know. The Amish are much more conservative. The Amish in this area only drive horse and buggies. I’m guessing in 24 hours I have more than 100 buggies go past my house each day. They cannot have telephones in their house. Their clothing is much plainer than that of the Mennonite. Mennonites can have cars and telephones and most of the other things someone like me owns. They both come from the same religious background. And the Amish and Mennonite women all wear a prayer cap or bonnet. It’s quite interesting. But like most things, there are many varieties of Amish and Mennonites.

    One week from today I’ll be in Antigua. Perhaps we will see each other!
