    How wonderful to see. There is every reason to be proud of this occasion. Although I’ve been to Luxembourg City, I really don’t know THAT much about Luxembourg, I recently found my Mother’s family can be traced back to 1799 in Luxembourg, so the more I hear and know about Luxembourg, the better.
