I have always wanted to visit Friesland as I have an interest in isolated languages and cultures and the Frisan languages is the closest cousin language to English. So when invited by a friend to Husum in the center of Nordfriesland to spend a few days exploring the Frisan language and culture I jumped at it.

The Frisii are the only West Germanic people whose language culture and very name survives from Roman times in history. This is the group of folks who kicked the Romans ass at the Battle of Baduhennawood after they hung the Roman Tax man. Ya got to love them right but they are hanging on by a thumbnail now as a distinct language and culture.
