Mr Monkey visits the Begijnhof, 19th September

"Sauvegarde means safety, apparently"

Mr Monkey left the Begijnhof through a small door in the main gates. He crossed the bridge and looked back at the gate. The date 1776 only refers to the building of the gateway; the rest of the beguinage dates from the 17th century. Mr Monkey looked up the canal, which was momentarily empty of tour boats, then set off into town.
