Mr Monkey in Bruges, 16th September

"We need to find the front door, you know"

Mr Monkey scampered around the back of the Sint Janshospitaal, the hospital of St John. This is the oldest building in Bruges, and was used as a hospital and infirmary from the 12th century to the 19th. It's a museum now. The church was associated with Saint John the Baptist and Saint John the Evangalist. Just before scurrying through the alleyway to get to the front door he noticed a small panel carved with the Paschal Lamb, the symbol of Saint John the Baptist.
