27th September 2008: Elephant watching
Sep 27, 2008

Elephant watching in the streets of Antwerpen … no joking!

After Rotterdam (Holland) it is Antwerp's turn to host the Elephant Parade. It is a parade of real size baby elephants that were put here and there in the city. See http://ep.uplinq.nl/en

We start the 3,5 hour long walking rally at 1:30 p.m. from Antwerp Central Station (side Koningin Astridplein – in front of the escalator to the underground byclicle parking). We walk about 7 km, try to solve a number of questions on the way, look at the beautiful arty elephants, keep our fingers crossed for nice weather … and it will be a looooooovely day!

During our walk Karibu treats everyone to a drink. We'll be back at Central Station around 5 p.m. and then... another free Karibu drink!

You do not have to register; participation is free… see you Saturday 27 September at 1:30 at Koningin Astridplein!
