This is a very strange picture because of that strange art that is embedded on the left side of the picture. It was even more strange to stare at in person. I actually felt strange walking up to it and peering around to figure out what was going on.

Ulaf’s dream is to build engines for a top Formula One team.
Ulaf is currently operating a windmill in Haarlem. He takes his time when showing me how it works, telling me in great detail how the oak cogs were carved. He doesn’t get many visitors and he is excited that I want to know about all the machinery.
