It’s been a few years since I visited the windmills of the Zaanse Schans,
but I had guests from out of town visiting, and it was a glorious day, so
we did the tourist thing, and went to visit the windmills.

I have seen the inside of many windmills, even these previously, but
for some reason I really love them. Maybe because they are so historic,
maybe because they are quintessentially Dutch, or maybe because the
are just cool.
