Notes: If you would like a translation of what this card says, all you have to do is look at the title.  Wageningen is a city of about 37,000, located in central Netherlands.  That population includes students from all over the world who study at Wageningen University, which is considered the best university in the Netherlands.  The oldest settlement in the area existed in the year 828, and by 1263, Wageningen had become a city enclosed by a wall and a moat.  Much of the central part of the city was destroyed by artillery fire during World War II.  Today, the city boasts numerous museums, a zoo and a botanical garden.
