Beautiful Friesland – August 31st, 2011

During my summer vacation i spent two weeks in Friesland in the Netherlands. The weather wasn’t the best, but the landscape was really interesting. It was hard to find forests or even some big old trees. Everything was flat, excepting the dykes of the Ijsselmeer.
Here’s one photo, I took on a dyke:



20 years „De Doskerkerls“ – August 8th, 2011

Yesterday, I visited a festival close to my hometown.
„De Doskerkerls“ are usually old men, who are interested in old tractors and harvesting machines. Most of them are grown up on a farm, so their knowledge comes from their childhood. Now, they want to protect the old technical and historical machines and show them to the public.
In this video, you can see the „Doskerkerls“ and other clubs harvesting (unripe) corn and wheat:
