This old windmill was first built in 1804 in Holland and then shipped to Aruba piece by piece and reconstructed in 1960. It now features a moderately-priced restaurant that specializes in continental dining.

My husband and I use to go to Aruba for 2 weeks every year while living in NY during the 1970's....what a memorable time. We ate every night at what use to be called The Ole Moulin (Dutch Windmill). The specialty then was the Twin Tornadoes...2 perfect filet mignons in their special sauce. Am sure the island has changed in the past 30 plus years but we are now retired in Arizona and are thinking of going back again to relive those memories.

Many greetings to Arizona from Bonn, Germany,

Das gibts ja nicht, die Amis bauen alles nach ;) Wahrscheinlich sowieso deutsche Abstammung. Steht ja auch im Titel "Dutch"=Deutsch. Danke für Deinen netten Kommentar
