Rebuild after fire

Today I visited the rheumatologist. Because this part of our hopital is located near the village where I grew up, I've been going there today! I enjoyed the beautiful ride through the woods and along the farms. In the village I photographed the new Puurveense mill. Unfortunately the last mill burnt down in 1964, but it is being rebuild in 2015.

Puurveense molen
Vandaag moest ik naar de reumatoloog. Omdat deze afdeling van het ziekenhuis vlakbij het dorp ligt waar ik opgroeide ben ik daar naar toe gereden. Ik nam er wat foto's met mijn telefoon van de nieuwe molen. Ik was zo benieuwd hoe hij eruit zag!  De Puurveense molen brandde af op 14 februari 1964. De oude molen herbouwd. Sinds december 2015 draait hij weer.


As a child I liked to play with the children of the miller. Especially hide and seek in the large warehouse. I got green lemonade, and that was for me as a child special. At home we only had red lemonade ヅ 

Groene ranja
Als kind speelde ik elke dag met de kinderen van de molenaar. Voor verstoppertje in het enorme pakhuis! Ik kreeg daar groene limonade. Dat was voor mij als kind heel speciaal want thuis hadden we alleen rode.

  14. Thrilling.

    Guess where this is. Do they look Dutch? If you take the Keisei Skyliner from Narita Airport to Tokyo you will pass this in Sakura 佐倉, Chiba 千葉。I always looked forward to seeing it. It is still a goal of mine to visit rather than pass by. But, really, I think I should visit some windmills in your country! Your photos make me want to do that.
