So, I’m driving to work. I’m not late or really in a hurry, but I’m on the highway, and I want to go fast. I want to not be on the highway anymore and just be at work (well, I’d probably rather be at Disneyland but you get the point) when I see those red and blue lights flashing behind me. I spot them in the rear view mirror just as I change lanes. My heart starts beating faster. My palms get cold as I can feel slight perspiration on my forehead all while my stomach feels like its knotting up. And then I notice the police car getting closer to me, right behind me.

Most of Holland lies below sea level, so it is very marshy and damp. The proper name for Holland actually is Netherlands, which means "low lands." The farmers found that wooden shoes were useful when it came to walking on the marshy ground. They kept their feet from getting wet and didn't get ruined like leather shoes. Dutchmen "Klompen" dance in their wooden shoes, but they are mostly worn by farmers or nursery owners, as they are quite noisy to wear.
Come check out our display on the Netherlands and see what else you can learn about this interesting country.
