When we went to the Netherlands this summer, I was hoping to see different kinds of windmills. I was surprised to learn that there aren't a lot of it around. What happened? Technology did. They are using electric pumps so there are no more use for the windmills. There are some still scattered around the country but the numbers are dwindling. I didn't want to leave the Netherlands without getting a photo with a windmill in the background. We went to this particular windmill on our last day on our way to the train station.
