Mr Monkey scampered on to the Netherlands. He let his humans turn a handle to make some windmills turn (which did seem a little wrong), then studied Hoensbroek Castle. The castle, built near Heerlen, South Limburg, in the 17th century includes a farm and is surrounded by water. Then Mr Monkey looked at the port of Hoorn, with its 1532 defensive tower. Cape Horn is named after Hoorn because Willem Schouten, the first European to get there, was born in Hoorn.
