Blauwestad, new town in Groningen
For centuries the Dutch have reclaimed land from the sea.

Luyken lived in the second half of the "Golden Century" (17th century) and his work shows us the daily life of his time.

Kiwikorrels
Another of Frans Hertoghs' regular contributions. This episode is about Hiring a Leopard.
The Dutch version of this article is published in the September/October 2006 (third) edition of Holland Focus.

Children need to experience their native language and culture.
The importance of Dutch education abroad.
When the first Dutch immigrants arrived in Australia fifty years ago, most did not speak one word of English. At the time, schools emphasized for the Dutch students to forget Dutch as soon as possible and only use English, because naturalising would be easier and quicker. Now Australia is experiencing the impact of this way of thinking.
The Dutch version of this article is published in the September/October 2006 (third) edition of Holland Focus.
The English version is available here.

The Great Australian Outback Cattle Drive
City Slickers can now ride with the legends and relive the romance of Australian 'droving' history.
