Westerwoldse Aa, River
Germany

De Westerwoldse Aa is een oud riviertje (beekje) in Westerwolde. De rivier wordt gevormd uit de riviertjes Mussel Aa en Ruiten Aa die bij Wessinghuizen samen komen. Het riviertje stroomt richting de Dollard. In het gedeelte ten noorden van Bad Nieuweschans vormt het riviertje de rijksgrens tussen Nederland en Duitsland. In de middeleeuwen werd de Westerwoldse Aa na binnenkomst in het landschap Reiderland de Reider Ee genoemd en liep door tot aan de Punt van Reide in de Eems. De grens tussen Westerwolde en Reiderland lag tussen de kerspelen Vriescheloo en Blijham. Tegenwoordig heet de stroom tot aan Nieuwe Statenzijl ook Westerwoldse Aa en buiten de sluizen Buiten-Aa, Schanskerdiep en Grote Gat.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
