Last weekendMarch 07, 2012
Last weekend I decided to do something nice. On saturday I decided to visit the recycle stores in Zutphen. All I found was just some jewellery. Nice ones I have to say! I've walked around a bit in Zutphen, watched the history of it, and took a nice Latte Macchiato when I was shivery and tired of walking. Mind you, Zutphen is littered with cobblestones, and I, as always, was walking on my platform heels. Very tiresome!
On sunday we decided to make a walk in the forest; the sun was shining, birds were twitterpated and so did I when I woke up and saw the sun. A sign of spring! Finally! A friend and I found something on the internet about a secret village in Vierhouten, Nunspeet. It was a village people made in WWII in 1943 deep in the forests to flee from the Germans. They built huts underneath the ground. With the Mini Cooper we hit the road. The website told us that the secret village was now very easy to find, but it was the opposite that was true. We could choose to find it in a 4 hour long walk, struggling over sand dunes, and forest ground. Looking at my shoes; that was a no go. We asked two elder ladies and they said that we had to drive a bit further to the city and that will lead us to the secret village. And that was true! Though the huts were not so easy to find, we found all three of them! Standing there it was unbelieveable. If you looked at the huts, where a grown up could not stand straight, if you looked at the beds, and feel the cold rising from the ground, you just can't believe that people lived there for an entire year even in the terrible cold winter.
In 1944 two soldiers discovered a boy getting water and when the soldiers fired, the village was alarmed and they fled. Unfortunatly 8 of them didn't make it and were shot.
And what did I wore? You could've already seen a little preview above, but here goes!
