Rhine Cruise: Kinderdijk

Today on our Viking river cruise, we visited the windmills in the village of Kinderdijk, Netherlands. It’s pronounced “Kinderdike” with a long “i” and silent “j”. They were actually more interesting that I expected. We had a tour which explained the history of the windmills and we went inside one of the windmills. It was located in South Holland below Amsterdam and east of Rotterdam which is the largest port in Europe so we saw quite a few barges, ships, and tug boats in that area where several rivers come together. In the evening on our way north to Amsterdam, we had to go through some locks, which was interesting at night.
