The Mill in Buren

Yesterday, while riding toward Tricht, we stopped in Buren at a park. Then came Hans, the miller's apprentice, walking through and he asked where we were from, and then he invited us to come see "his" mill. So Millar Bart and Millar's apprentice Hans took us to into the Mill and set the sails on all four arms of the mill. When they were finally done, the wind died, and the arms would not turn. It is a real working wheat mill, and it was huge. The leg span of the mill is 27 meters!
