'Everything in Almere is new; there are no replica's from the Golden Age to be found here. It has a short history which is more than charm , and for those who observe carefully it will not be difficult to see that the new town and new land have an unparalleled beauty of their own.'From: De ontdekking van Almere, H.J.A. Hofland

It is a long time ago I wrote something on my blog. Back again!
Last week I made a cycling- and sailing tour through the south of Holland.
We also slept on the boat. It was wunderful to cycle along
all the rivers and canals.
Kinderdijk is situated in a polder at the confluence
of the Lek and Noord Rivers.
To drain the polder, a system of 19 windmills was built around 1740.
This group of mills is the largest concentration of old
windmills in the Netherlands.
The windmills of Kinderdijk are of the best known tourist sites.
They have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
