On Thursday September the 10th we went to a cool tower in the forest, we climbed up and right near the top there was a net hanging over the ground! It was super creepy!!
We also went to a museum on Thursday, about the wind mills and the polder and dykes in here in the Netherlands. It was super cool and interesting and it had lots of fun and interactive stuff...like building a bridge, making a strait river for boats to go down more easily, building a dyke, pumping a pump and making bubbles!!
A polder is a piece of land that was once water, but has been blocked off from the rest of the sea. After they build a dyke/wall they use pumps turned by windmills to remove all of the water from the polder-to-be and return it back to the ocean.
After all of the water is gone, you still have to wait approximately 25 years for the water to drain, then you can start construction for houses but you still have to wait a couple more years to start farming.
