The Alblasserwaard is a polder in the province South Holland in the Netherlands. It is mainly known for the windmills of Kinderdijk, a village in the northwest of the Alblasserwaard.
The first human inhabitants of the Alblasserwaard settled there after the last Ice Age, around 10.000 years ago. The ice had not reached the area itself, but Eolian deposits created high points in the wet environment. These high points were places where hunter-gatherers settled, as archaeological investigations in the area have shown.
During the Middle Ages several canals and dikes were created to reclaim the land, with the last part being endiked in the second half of the 14th century. Yet numerous floods continued to happen throughout the history of the area, as it is bound by rivers on all sides.

Florence is the capital city of the Italian region of Tuscany and of the province of Florence.
It is the most populous city in Tuscany, with 367,569 inhabitants (1,500,000 in the metropolitan area).
The city lies on the River Arno and is known for its history and its importance in the Middle Ages and in the Renaissance, especially for its art and architecture.
A centre of medieval European trade and finance and one of the richest and wealthiest cities of the time, Florence is often considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance; in fact, it has been called the Athens of the Middle Ages.
It was long under the de facto rule of the Medici family.
From 1865 to 1870 the city was also the capital of the Kingdom of Italy.

"The Mistaya River originates in Peyto Lake (shown in comments), a glacial lake of typical blue colour (due to rock flour). A series of elongated lakes are formed along the river: Mistaya Lake and Waterfowl Lakes.
The river merges into the North Saskatchewan River at Saskatchewan River Crossing."
Getting mighty warm here. Hope not too bad for you.
Enjoy a wonderful weekend!

A casa do Rio: (Pequeno relato feito pelo médico João de Almeida)
"Corria o ano de 1929 quando a região de Vagos (especialmente, mas não só) foi atingida por uma grave epidemia de tifo - doença transmitida pelo piolho. Não havendo, na altura cura para este mal, era a prevenção a única arma de que se dispunha. Assim sendo e devido ao facto de a fábrica da Vista Alegre ter muitos trabalhadores oriundos desta região, foram criados dois pontos por onde, obrigatoriamente, passavam todas as pessoas e onde, para além do banho e desinfecção com criolina ... mudavam de roupa. Um dos pontos era esta casa, o outro o palheiro onde hoje se encontra o ... Palheiro. Assim se conseguiu que a doença não dizimasse a nossa gente."
