Guyito enjoying the windmills
Kumusta? To make up for my long absence here, I’ll take you today to a beautiful, beautiful place called Zaanse Schans. It is a little village that’s just about a 40-minute ride from the Amsterdam Central Station.
Zaanse Schans is a reminder of the how life was back in the 18th and 19th centuries. Some of the traditional houses in Zaanse Schans are now museums, gift shops, or workshops, while others are still used as private residences. Lucky people!
Now let me take you to some interesting things and places in Zaanse Schans.
Here, you see the windmills. There are 10 pairs of sail in Zaanse Schans that continue to turn. They are used for sawing wood and grinding oil, flowers, and spices. Pretty helpful, aren’t they?
Then, there is the cheese farm where a demonstration on how the traditional Dutch cheese is held. Oh, and guests are welcome to sample their cheese products 😉
So cheese-sy 🙂
There are craft museums, too, that shows demonstration like shoemaking.
Will they ever make shoes for me? 🙂
Well, that’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed my story and photos on Zaanse Schans. Next time I’ll take you to a flower market!
