Mr Monkey in Blankenberge and Wenduine, 17th September

"If you look carefully you can see the joins"

Mr Monkey caught a tram along to Blankenberge, and trotted to Weststraat to see The Façade by Robert Kusmirowski. At first he thought it was just a house with a Beaufort 03 sign outside until he realised that the whole front of the house was an excellent and convincing fake based on Polish buildings, with a just a couple of deliberate touches to reveal the truth. Then Mr Monkey caught another tram and got off at the Molen (Mill) tramstop. He quickly realised how the tramstop got its name.

You can read about Robert Kusmirowski at the Polish Culture website.
