IJzevoorde

IJzevoorde is a small village in the province of Gelderland in the east part of the Netherlands. The name literally means Iron Ford. It has about 30 inhabitants, it has a school, a kindergarten, a gym, a bar and a small stage. The school has about 60 students and there are a lot of farmer's children attending the school. IJzevoorde has also a small campground. Close to IJzevoorde lies the castle of "De Slangenburg" which literally means 'snake castle'. But that refers to a little river called the Slinge. (a hospital in Doetinchem is called Slinge-land).
