Though they were just twisted straws, no drops of water were going through.

A few tens of years ago thatched roofs were still very popular in Poland, especially in the villages. Now we can still see them in the open air museums where we walk from one building to the other and learn how our ancestors lived.

This barn with enormously huge thatched roof stands in the museum in Lipowiec (southern Poland).
