...during the drive, and woke up in the city I'd think I was in France. I didn't see a real "Luxembourg" culture here, but I"m sure there is one. Everyone spoke French, and all the street signs are in French. I guess that since it's such a small country it'd be really difficult to have a separate language.

Luxembourg itself is impressive, to say the least. Stand atop one of the casemates and peer down to the Pèltrusse River to see what I'm talking about. It's awesome to imagine the many battles that occurred here over the centuries. ...
