How many famous Luxembourg citizens can you name. I mean of course besides champion water skiing champion Sylvie Hülsemann. Per Wikipedia they have had a couple of solid artists but this nation of half a million (with about 100,00 living in Luxembourg City) are really defined more by what surrounds them than by whom they are.
We have been here two days and have seen lizards, teenage toughs at the train station, streets named after U.S. presidents, and the calmest European plaza so far. A fun one too with a large orchestra playing marching songs and people politely clapping when they are done. We also have camped under a highway bridge, talked to a fellow camper from Spain while she machine sewed aprons to sell at the market, and were confounded by historic sites that lacked English signage (this in a country where almost everyone speaks English along with French, German, and Luxembourgish – yes Luxembourgish is a real language). So we made up what we thought the history of Luxembourg was. It involved dragons. Lots of dragons.
