>Dutch in Drenthe


Drente is green, dark green. It used to be the poorest province of the Netherlands; at the beginning of the last century people still lived in ‘plaggenhutten’ huts made of sods of earth.
The farm we stayed in had a reed roof

and of course I wore wooden shoes

when I walked to the pond to pick blackberries

In the trees I saw berries that I didn’t dare eat

To ride my bike again the next day

In the Dutch mountains
