Mr Monkey scampered along Hoogstraat and came out into the Binnenrotte, Rotterdam's main market place. If it had been Tuesday or Saturday, Mr Monkey would have been able to buy food, drink, fresh fish, plants, books and many other things from more than 500 stalls. As it wasn't Tuesday or Saturday, he looked at an empty market place, then admired the St Laurenskerk and the main library. The church is the only medieval building left in Rotterdam, having been built between 1449 and 1525.
