Gouda and de Zaansche Molen - Day 7






This morning, Lya and drove to Gouda, famous for its cheese, candles, and the spectacular stained glass windows in de Sint Janskerk ( St. John's church). It's late, so I don't have much time to write, but I will share with you some of my photos.




I look like a giant standing next to this tiny vintage Fiat!








































Wooden shoes just a tad big for me. At de Zaansche Molen.
























Gears inside a windmill. We climbed all the way up on tiny, narrow wooden stairs, and felt the amazing rush of air each time the enormous arms went past.
















The museum on the history of Verkade, a Dutch biscuit and chocolate company.
