From an other Angle

A very ‘Dutchy’ picture today, the Greyhound mill from an other angle. It is most of the time a picture of the same mill on my blog. Woerden has one mill and I live right besides it. I think it is a magnificent one. It is build on a hill and on Saturday it is 'working'. They still do grind cereal there, so if you like you can go up to buy an ounce of flower.... I don't think it tastes different.

I have read ones that the ancient Egyptians used to have very bad tooth. This because when grinding cereal, they added sand. That simplified the grinding process..

We have windmill in etnographic museum, but I think, it doesn't work.

I visited Windmills Museum near Lille (Rijsel) -- they prepare flour and oil by their mills, but in fact, mainly to testing the windmills.

I don't think you can buy an ounce of flour, but I agree that probably it tastes the same.
Your mill is imposing and I really like the red tiled roofs.
Very nice shot.

This is indeed a very "Dutchy" picture. Windmills and bicycles always come to mind when I think of the Netherlands. :)

Nice story too!
