Window Shopping at the Grand Duchy, Luxembourg
Upon arrival, I spent four hours of stroll in the Grand Duchy. From Avenue de la Gare, I saw shops having weekend "solde" (sales) that even the "libraires" (book shops) were piling up books. The "mousels" (bars) had neon-lit signs with "bufferding" on display. The main shopping street is found along Avenue de la Liberte (above) which hosts a fascinating view of the bridges (pont passerelle). One thing noticeable in this capital is the big volume of banks scattered all over the place. Can you imagine the flow of money through this small European capital in Luxembourg?
Imelda Marcos, the Napoleses, and most of our Philippine politicians and their family would be so thrilled to spend our hard-earned taxes here!
This is the Eye in the Sky!
