    Edegem/Mortsel at the Edegemstraat

    On a sunday morning

    March 2004 - On a lazy sunny afternoon in wintertime - in Mortsel. Everything peaceful
    A war memorial of the first worldwar.
    April the 5th - 1943
    The second world war was even harder for the inhabitants of Mortsel - a bombing raid by the americans looking for german airplane targets.But it went wrong.
    For more info on this tragedy - look at Irisbe pages about Mortsel.
    Today the Americans recognized officialy that the clean bombing raid was not that clean.
    But which war is clean ??

    Trots-Haugthiness

    At the occasion of a small reunion with some Brasil travelers i visited the border of Edegem/Mortsel - 10 km from Antwerp and the hometown of a popular VT-lady.
    My one day visit - i'm sure i missed a lot of a
    attractions in this area - like :
    - Maria cave
    - Fort IV and V
    - Castles like Hof ter Linden
    - Many museums like the Tram and Bus
    museum
    But i will be back !

    Mortsel, South/East from Antwerp at 12 km approx.
    It is a small city with 23000 people.
    I have a travelogue about Mortsel, some of it's activities and I will make an extra one of Mortsel as the place I live, my street, my garden, my habitat '-)
    Off the beaten path or cultural? LOL I think camping in my garden is rather adventureous! hahaha
    but not impossible!

    Visit some travelogues!

    Mortsel general view

    travelogues of a peculiar funeral

    Travelogues about the last day of 2001 and a short intro about the Fort IV

    my home sweet home travelogues

    What is worth fighting for!
