Surreal.... exactly what I felt seeing these very old buildings kept meticulously clean and repaired, with not many people or automobiles around. Seems a little uncomfortable to those of us used to busy street scenes and city life, but beautiful place nonetheless!

The right question would be: What kind of imports does Luxembourg have?

That's actually just an artpiece, it's not an actual person.

The city looks clean and nice, but never as rich, as the capital of the richest country of the world would supposed to be.
Where are the villas and the Ferraris?
