Mr Monkey carried on along the beach until he got to Ostende, then caught a tram across town to the Venetian Galleries. He heard a man playing a barrel organ, and noticed that he was being helped by a small monkey* who attracted people by waving at them. Mr Monkey relaxed with his humans at the nearest cafe, listening to the music and watching people promenading on the promenade.
* who might actually be an ape - Mr Monkey couldn't see his tail - but Mr Monkey chooses to believe he was a monkey as he was being helpful, which apes aren't.
