Mr Monkey's Ghent boat trip

"I don't think they should have filled it in in the first place"

Mr Monkey looking at a large earth bank blocking the canal Mr Monkey in the other tunnel under the Sint-Laurentsplein

The canal originally went right across the city, but a lot was filled in in the late nineteenth century on the grounds that the canal was a health hazard. Now they're digging the canals out again, but they still working on it so there wasn't much for the boat to do but turn round after going past Gerald the Devil's House. Mr Monkey glared at the earth bank blocking the canal, then admired the lights inside the tunnel.
