More VOC detritus.

This is the only windmill in sight, so far. It's actually an old Dutch East India Company (VOC) saw-mill, just chillin' there. This area used to be VOC warehouses, and the city has grown around the saw-mill. There seems to be a bar or café connected to it, but there didn't seem to be a way to go inside the mill itself, even though it looks like it's kept up.

It's a brewery, it's called the IJ brewery, it's amazing, they only sell their beer and it's really full of locals, I used to live just behind it.
