Kinderdijk is a small village where in the polder behind the dike, a long canal is dug to take care of the regulation of the water. Along this canal (and few side canals) 19 windmills await you. I was here at a rainy winter's day and utterly alone (not a tourist for miles). This place must also be one of the most favourite ones of Ilja (our son) as he is crazy about windmills (he calls them "draai-draais", which means as much as "turning-turnings"). He was not with me, but will be as soon as I return on a sunnier day (even the camera got drops on the lense, as you will see on the pictures.
