"Dost not see. A monstrous giant of infamous repute"

Following my Dutch language class today, the adventure began. I caught a train to Schiedam in search of the real Dutch Mills. The first that came into view was de Noord , the tallest mill in the world (de hoogste molen ter wereld - 33,3 m). For the last 35 years, the mill has been home to Restaurant De Noordmolen

Of the 20 mills originally built in Schiedam in the early 1800's only 5 remain. RIP Don Quixote- "Too much sanity may be madness! But maddest of all - -to see life as it is and not as it should be".
