Anvers, Antwerp, Anwerpen, Amberes.
Different names to the destination for today’s route.
At the end I rode 130 kms and 320 m.
The main objective for today was make kilometers, enjoy the beautiful day, and see the city, and their forts at south of it.
Some things that you can find in Belgium.
I don’t know what bird is it.
A pheasant!! I never watched one.

Near there the first fort that I found, Fort 8.
The next in my trip was the Fort 7.
It’s a park for fishing! There were some mini dam to fishing.
The rest of the fort was abandoned and it’s part of a nature reserve.
But I went to inspect the fence a little.
The next, Fort 5. Yes.

This is the house of bats!

Fort 4 “Fort kapitein Wagner”.
It’s a histroical memorial and museum. It was cloused, but I can see some parts o it.
It’s similar to other forts, but preserved the access bridge.
It was built in 1860! It wasn’t been built for the First War World!!
