View on "Cha Gorreana", one of the few tea plantations in Europe.
Early contacts between China and Portuguese explorers led to initial trials of tea production on the island of Sao Miguel, the main Island of the Azores archipelago in 1750. But only in the 19th century two tea experts from then Portuguese Macau introduced the art of commercial tea cultivation, with the first tea being produced and sold in 1883 under the family compound of Gorreana.

Netherlands, Zaandam
The foundation I work for runs (amongst others) a ground, where 500 schoolchildren each maintain their own kitchen garden.
In this flower garden on the same ground passers-by are invited to pick their own bouquet.

Inlet system for seawater and evaporation leads to a real island product; sea salt from Lanzarote.

Winter is here, at last. Skating fever strikes the Dutch. A day later Ramon (Kappix) visited this place. I leave the main stage to him. I had barely enough wind, for half an hour or so. (Bft 2+, Triton kite, Canon S90) Image made with kite and camera (attached to the kite's line). © Tom Kisjes

Launching kite and camera (attached to the kite's line) near the spot where the Germans blew two holes in the IJsselmeer dyke on 17-04-1945, eighteen days before the end of World War II. Wieringermeer polder (visible in background) flooded within two days and forced desperate farmers and other inhabitants to leave their farms, land and other possessions.
In december 1945 the polder was dry again after dyke restoration and a lot of pumping. Leaving the dyke not as straight as he used to be.
