LP: Makina (Machine)


Ito ang simpleng waterwheel, na siyang makina na nagpapaandar ng watermill na ito sa Konavle, Croatia. Ito'y matatawag na waterwheel dahil ginagamit nito ang puwersa ng tubig upang umandar. Ang mga watermills noon ay siyang ginagamit sa pagprossesso ng harina at langis na oliba. Ngayon, may iilang watermills na lang ang natitira pero hindi na rin sila ginagamit.

Here's a simple waterwheel machine that used to run one of the watermills in Konavle, Croatia. These watermills were used to process flour and olive oil. There are only a few watermills left and they're no longer being used.

Ang puwersa ng ilog Ljuta ang nagpapatakbo sa waterwheel na nakita namin sa Konavle. Ang ilog na ito ay protektado ng gobyerno kaya't itoy napakalinis.

This is the source of power for the waterwheel in Konavle, the Ljuta River. This is a government protected river and is one of the cleanest rivers I've ever seen.

 Ito ang mga sistema ng kanal kung saan dumadaloy ang tubig galing sa ilog Ljuta. Sa mga kanal na ito dumadaloy ang patubig na nagpapaandar sa mga waterwheels. Ang mga watersmills noon ay napaka importante para sa ekonomiya ng Konavle.

Here are the canals used to direct water to the watermills, so that the waterwheels will run. The watermill system was extremely important for the economy of Konavle.
