Mr Monkey visits the Frietmuseum, 19th September

"I'm not being distracted from my love of bananas, you know"

On the ground floor of the museum Mr Monkey found out that the first people to eat potatoes were in Peru and Chile around 8,000BC, and that their potatoes were small and wild. He also saw models of many very odd looking varieties of potato (some so odd that he thought they were suffering from some kind of blight) and learned how the potato was brought to Europe.
