We were off on our way to see the windmills! We took a metro and a waterbus to get to Alblasserdam to get our bikes to get to Kinderdijk. Since we were not from the Netherlands, we got red bikes so that others know we are new to riding bikes in the Netherlands. Here, they do not wear helmets and they have right away over cars and people walking. I was very overwhelmed at first because I am short and the bikes were high up (even on the lowest setting) because the Dutch are tall people so I struggled the motion of starting the bike. Also, even back at home, I never rode in the street before on a bike so it was intense for me to be riding in the street, next to cars, and without wearing a helmet (good thing my parents were not there to see this)! Then we got to Kingerdijk where the we saw the windmills! Unfortunately they recently cut down all the tulips but seeing the windmills was a breathtaking site! Then we headed back to the bike rental store for some lunch and our guide with us told us that we biked a 10k! Then we went back to Rotterdam where Rosanne took us on a walking tour where we saw the oldest building that survived the bombing of 1665 and learned about what was going on in Rotterdam and the Netherlands as a whole during WWII. We got some free time to explore and eat and I (with some other people too) went to the Market Hall where they had so many vendors and shops selling all sorts of food. It was a great stop to be at. I was excited for tomorrow to be going to Amsterdam for the day!
