luxembourg is great, it's got that laid back small town touch... the only thing I don't like is the big ugly pink bridge

http://premium1.uploadit.org/Aviller71//luxelec3cpa.jpg this probably is the last place where I would imagine an actual existence of a communist movement..


Looks like a decent place.

Everything's expensive over there though (except for cigarettes and coffee). I paid €16 for a meal that would cost me half of that in Germany.

Do all the Luxembourgers cross the border to eat?

Luxembourg is very beautiful! The interesting thing is, it looks like it's a perfect mix of Grand "Parisian" style architecture, while still preserving the small town atmosphere.

My dad went to Luxembourg a few years ago for a sports competition, but he didn't get so many good pictures like these!

The early roots of Kampflamms photographic genius - awesome


Seems like you didn't have such a great camera as nowadays back then, eh?

And btw, why's this thread missing in your signature? That's unentschuldbar!

Luxembourg looks nice! But what is the actual GDP PPP per capita of Luxembourg? (thus including the actual population but also the workers living in nearby countries that commute to Luxembourg for work)
