No grammar today. Here are two random things we covered in Tuesday’s class, for fun:
1) hunebedden in the providence of Drenthe (Dutch wikipedia | Lijst). These are heavy, unwieldy ‘grave stones’. During the last ice age the northern half of the Netherlands was covered by ice. The boulders were brought over from Scandinavia on slow moving glaciers. When the ice melted, the stones remained. Around 4000 BC people moved the boulders into grave stone formation – somehow.
2. Laan van Meerdervoort in The Hague follows an old shoreline (which was apparently very popular to live near). I’ve already mentioned this, but it’s also the longest street in the country.
