Daily Flatland 5: More Dikes

Ok, I might have exaggerated the elevation a bit.
Actually, the sea around here is more a dull grey-green and many of the fish are flatter, and the soil is browner, but hey - I work with the pens I have at hand! Anyhow, the dike is a fascinating thing, not just for the etymology. Dikes and water pumps, for example, are the reason that Amsterdam is not an Island. Well, and that the polders aren't just sandbanks. But that's a topic for another time.

In the meantime, I would recommend you listen to John Cleese go on about creativity, rather than watching the news. It'll probably help you more!

I can't see him without thinking of the Popular People's Pfront of Judea.
