Twente In The East…

Continuing with the decorative “klompen” (clogs) I found displayed in the 2017 Garderen Sand Sculpture Exhibition, we are now looking towards the more eastern provinces and Wiki tells us:

Twente is a non-administrative region in the eastern Netherlands, comprising the most urbanised and easternmost part of the province of Overijssel. Twente is most likely named after the ‘Tuihanti’ or ‘Tvihanti’, a Germanic tribe that settled in the area and was mentioned by the Roman historian Tacitus. Twente has approximately 620,000 inhabitants, most of whom live in its three largest cities: Almelo, Hengelo and Enschede, the latter being the main city of the region.’
