Vlog number two! We’re here in Urk. Well actually I’m saying that in an American Way. But in Dutch its called “Urk”.
They have their own traditions and they wear special clothing. So the name Urk. “Urk” comes
from Orc which comes from Orca (Whale) which is the killer whale. I never knew that before.
Something new we just learned. So this thing behind me is an oven. This is where they smoke
the fish. Here in Urk it is custom for men to wear a golden earring. The
golden earring has some kind of crest in it, and… it stems from way back in the day when
all these people here were fisherman and if they would drown out on the sea they at least
would get a proper burial because they would have gold in their ears. So my mom just offered
to get some salmon for us, smoked salmon and he’s always hungry. This time he said: “no”.
Too fishy, did you hear that people he said “no” to food just so you know. So its not
just all about food, they also have like.. a garage sale I guess. Let me show you. So you
can basically get all kinds of stuff and it pretty cool cause like over here I will show
you in a bit, you have like really old jewelry. Yaay! The sun is here. Time to put on my glasses. Okay so… there is this thing called pickled herring, and my mom is going to eat it right
now. I think its really gross but she loves it. I love it! Up to the lighthouse yay. Do
you think we can stay up there for a long time? I don’t know we
should check. It looks kind of busy right
now… soo we might be, they might push us off. Okay so I just read on the sign the lighthouse
was built in 1617 and the first light was in September. It’s pretty cool kind of
looks new though. The building is probably a lot newer. Yeah, maybe a fire burned it
down or something, I don’t know or maybe its just our imag… imaginee… Imagination. Don’t choke up in front of the camera. You’re funny. Maybe its our imagination, I don’t know. This our second vlog. we’re going home now.
