get loads of mails. The majority are about pills, lonely ladies,
bankaccounts, investment advice, "updates from microsoft" to destroy my
PC, answers to mails which I've never sent, mailservers bouncing
because some cretin 'borrowed' my adress, penis extensions and other
which doesn't cheer me up terribly. Mailwasher
rules, together with the deletebutton, so there may be some collateral
TIP: To ensure your message reaches me a normal name helps. If you're really named Dr Obote etc tough luck. A relevant header (Hello, Hey or loads of exclamationmarks are not clever) and a small filesize without attachments are a good thing.
And if you don't get an answer immediately it could just be that I'm busy!

the Winschoterdiep (canal), turn right to Zuidlaren, Foxhol- De
Turn right in Kiel Windeweer into the Dorpsstraat (along the canal)
the direction of Assen
Loon-Gasteren-Anloo-Annen-Spijkerboor-Kiel Windeweer. The Dorpsstraat begins from this end with No 314, 132 is a few kilometers further down the road!
By train to either Assen or Kropswolde, continuing by bicycle (25kms or 5kms)
As far as I can make out the busservice has been disontinued, apart from the schoolservice which stops at the Kielsterachterweg (Post #4) and then a 12 minute trek (walk the lane in the direction of the church and footiefield, continue over the bridge and turn left)
A-28: exit Assen zuid, direction Veendam, 3rd exit on the roundabout Gieten, first exit Annen, continue as for the cycling route from Assen (Turn left before bridge after entering Kiel Windeweer) Note: the routeplanners route over Zuidlaren suffers from roadworks and detours.
turn south in the direction of Zuidlaren. On entering 'de Groeve'
turn left for Kiel Windeweer. In Kiel Windeweer turn right before the
for the Dorpsstraat.
No 132 is opposite the church, you can park at the back
The Kieldiep connects the Zuidlaardermeer with Stadskanaal and Germany, and can be used by motorboats up to approx 15m
The GPS coordinates are 6.46'44" East, 53.06'42" North.
Farming and livestock still dominates the village. Popular crops are potatoes, sugarbeet, corn and maize. And some black and white cows, and luckily not many pigs and the occasional horse, donkey or pony.
What else is Kiel Windeweer famous for: First there are our opposite neighbours Jan & Marola who run a tiny hotel with a wonderfull kitchen in the converted church: de Amshoff You can also encounter Kiel Windeweer on products by the Groninger cakefactory Barkhuis (well within smelling distance), and if cycling is to much work you can can get an Italian motorcycle at HMI or even heavier metal at USA-cars / EPS (actually based in 'Nieuwe Compagnie', another typical name from our past as a fen colony) .
