Some of you may know or have noticed I have a kind of project to visit interesting Dutch cities, for fun and photography. Last Friday the weather was again unusually warm and sunny, I guess we have to "thank" climate change for that. For me a reason to visit another city on my list. If possible I do this by public transport, mostly by train. This time my goal was the small city of Schiedam, right next to Rotterdam. Schiedam turned out to have some beautiful (lovingly restored) canals, distilleries and warehouses and is famous for it's centuries of jenever ("Dutch gin") production. For this purpose the world's highest windmills were built. This because they were located in the city so to catch enough wind they needed to be very high.
