We are a group of students from IES Menéndez y Pelayo and we went to Wijchen in Holland in October on a students' exchange programme. We spent one week there with Dutch families. They were very friendly and kind. We had a very good time and we learnt a lot about how the Dutch people take care of the environment.    
   
 
 

A FIRST LOOK

Holland is an ecological country. People there usually ride bicycles and there are lots of cycling lanes. The streets in Holland are very clean, and at school the students pick the bits of paper with a kind of big pliers.  

There are a lot of mills too, some are watermills and some are windmills.
