Ben Oostdam was born in 1932 in:



AMSTERDAM


HOLLAND


THE NETHERLANDS




I was born 10 foot
below sealevel!

That's why I am interested in the sea, of course.
Even my name is
related to water;
in English, it would be
"EAST-DAM".
The year before I was born,
the (other) Dutch completed
the enclosure of the "Zuiderzee"
which you can see on the
map and photograph
at the left.
This was the "AFSLUITDIJK",
at the top of the green
or

Enclosure Dike



By the way,
what is the difference
between a :

DAM

and a

DIKE


?
