Water music and the Frisian countryside

Water music and the Frisian countryside

by Sibghat Ullah

 

I started my day by waking up at usual time & got ready for going to Water Campus. Before leaving home what I saw outside through window a very heavy rain thunder with combination of strong wind. After getting that normal somehow I moved ahead to water campus. I showed the pitch to my group members there. As we are the first group so our supervisor first asked us to show up with our pitch and poster logo. I presented pitch out of my group, they appreciated my pitch and loved our poster logo.

 

What I saw in the hall, a DJ setting up his instrument for European Water Tech Week Leeuwarden (EWTW), the interesting part he was not a normal DJ, He could play the music with the water. I really wished I could hear music but unfortunately I was leaving the Leeuwarden and the next day he had plan to play music.

 

We worked again on our case for some more time and then our supervisor said us to get ready for the next destination i.e. Hindeloopen. We left the Water campus and walked ahead Albert heijn for buying grocery stuff for the next two days as Hindeloopen is not a big city with a lot of super Markets. Everyone bought the stuff representing their country food. Then we moved to train station and Peter de Jong bought our tickets to Hindeloopen, the train was after 45 minutes, meanwhile we all ate food and clicked many pictures together. The time we started journey to the hindeloopen, heavy thunder started and luckily we were in the train.

 

 

Throughout the journey I saw green and green land everywhere with only agriculture and small water channels passing through them. Upon arriving station, we had walk to welgelegen for few minutes.

 

I found the place very peaceful with few huts, camps and RVs all around. All the boys went to one hut and all girls on the other. We had Netherlands, Romanian and Myanmar food in the evening bringing with coconut noodles, polenta and mushroom stew, boerenkool (cale leaves and mashed potatoes) with the rookworst and vegetarian soyballs. The food was really yummy and appetizing.

At night we played a card game, it was really great fun and after that we slept well.
