    "Long long time ago......"

    by mauritsh Updated Jan 9, 2004

    Favorite thing: When you come to the Netherlands and have more time than one week, go to one of the islands, like Terschelling or Ameland. We did already when I was 3 years old, as I can remember very well.
    As you see the brat on the right is me on the island of Terschelling together with my big brother.
    Gazing at the dutch army who were doing some exercise on the beach. Yep then I think my interest for aviation was founded.

    Favorite thing: Thare are just a few high appartment buildings in Hengelo and the skyline is still dominated by 3 towers: Brinktoren, City Hall Tower and the churchtower of the St. Lambertus Basilic.

    The first two are on the picture.

    Free water

    by pieter_jan_v Written Mar 12, 2014

    Favorite thing: In 2104 a "Watertappunt" opened at the market square; a tap with free potable water.

    Hengelo lacked an ancient city pump as many of the towns and villiages around Hengelo have.
