all the time in the world
Millers do have a lot of time on their hands. When the windmills is working they have to stay near it and watch out for it. But if the winddirection doesn´t change, or the strength, they can just watch and wait.
If, by any chance, you start a conversation it will take a long time, especially when you are from a place where they have windmills. This miller knows every windmill in europe, and even the ones that aren´t there anymore........
Aarlanderveen is a small village where all people know eachother and are very active in local associations. The Oranjevereniging (orange union) is one of the examples.
Originally a group of people who organised a nice day for the whole family at Queensday (30 april), is now also organising a party week in summer. And year after year it is a great succes. The mainstreet is decorated with little flags to make the partymood even better.
