In the Windmill Village outside Amsterdam, the Netherlands has arrived. How can we not look at the windmill? Take the train Zaandam Kogerveld and get off, then walk to Zaandam Kogerveld bus stop. After boarding, tell the driver Uncle to get off at Zaanse Schans station and buy tickets directly from him. Five short stops are 2.5 Euros a person, expensive to death. The Windmill Village is free to visit. Three of the five large windmill workshops are open. One is a dye processing workshop, one is a peanut oil mill, and the other is a wood sawing workshop. Each one needs a 4 euro ticket. Cheese mill is also free to visit, there are instructions on how to make cheese, but also try to eat and buy in three open windmill workshops, the first is dye processing workshop, the second is the peanut oil mill, the third is the last and simplest is the wood saw, I went to the second peanut oil windmill, which can buy fresh pressed peanuts, see the whole workshop depends on one person, one windmill and inside. Machines squeeze out a lot of peanut oil, which is quite different from the way I saw on the tip of my tongue that we used to crush peanut oil with stakes by the labor of dozens of strong men. I really lament the incalculable impetus of the European Industrial Revolution to their entire region. There are also workshops for making Dutch wooden shoes, which are free to visit. I admire them for making their own wooden shoes into flower pots, penholders, fridge stickers and so on. ~The key is that some people are wearing them. I admire them very much.
Sanders Windmill Village, to the Netherlands, windmills must be seen. Kinderdijk is only 12 kilometers away from Rotterdam. It can be directly accessed by bus No. 93 or No. 90. Sanders Windmill Village is also a good place to see windmills, but the windmills inside are all shipped from all over the 20th century, with a strong commercial atmosphere. The 19 windmills on children's embankments have been in existence since 1740. So far, some people still live in windmills and can experience the original Dutch pastoral flavor better! The scenery of the children's dikes is a kind of unspeakable beauty, with a very earthy idyllic wind, and a very spectacular momentum. Originally, I slept in the airport all night confused. Once I got to the children's dikes, there were not many visitors to the children's dikes, and the admission tickets were not expensive (13.5 euros for tickets + cruise ships). Most of the visitors were old foreigners, so I was embarrassed to take a trip. When we were on the boat, we heard the crew say that it only needs to pay a small rent to live in the windmill every year, but only if you have the qualification to operate the windmill, which is very difficult to get. Living in the windmill, you need to complete the maintenance and upgrading of more than 6,000 windmills every year, without knowing the experience!

How can we miss the windmill in the Netherlands? The location of the scenic spot is good. It is also an old-fashioned scenic spot. We saw several Chinese delegations. The windmill is not as grand as it could be imagined, but it also has a rural flavor. Unfortunately, when it went, it rained. Fortunately, it's not raining very much. Besides windmills, there are cheese factories to visit. It's interesting to see the production process of famous Dutch cheese.
