Mr Monkey in Brussels, 26th May

"That's a pleasant sound, you know"

Mr Monkey watching a band of Belgian bagpipers Mr Monkey watching a statue of St James being carried through the Grand Place

Mr Monkey stood in front of the Hotel de Ville, watching as a band of bagpipers and drummers went past. Then the small parade finished with a group of men wearing scallop shell pilgrim's badges carrying a statue of St James of Compostela on their shoulders.

You can read about St James and the great tradition of pilgrimages to Compestela at the Confraternity of Saint James website.
