03 October 2019

Three days in Luxembourg. While the days are filled with workshops @moliri.heikeburch I wander through the city in the evening. The last rays of sun try to spread some warmth. But they hardly manage it. It's fresh here in Luxembourg. I learn that it has rained a lot here in the last few days. I guess I'm lucky at the moment.
Luxembourg itself, as a city, has not yet convinced me. The old town is beautiful, but somehow empty. I have heard that many Luxembourgers work in the city during the day, but leave the city in the evening for the countryside. So do many of the cross-border commuters. They only come to the city to work, and the evening belongs to the traffic jams on the streets.
So I stroll through almost empty streets, here and there a tourist group with tour guides in every language imaginable. Eventually I find a sweet cafรฉ where I sit comfortably and wait in vain for a person to whom I can make my wishes known. Here, too, the guests are exclusively tourists. Where they get their full cups from, however, will remain a mystery to me. After a good hour of cosiness and warmth, I leave the vintage reading cafรฉ again and make my way "home" to Esch. Because this is where I have my Airbnb.
Another anecdote about traffic. I admit it, I wasn't aware that Luxembourg was "that big". The taxi driver at the airport wanted 90 euros for the trip from the airport to Esch. The bus driver then sold me a 2-hour ticket with which I could travel once through the whole country. For 2 euros. So I took the bus to the city centre and then the Regio to Esch. Including the observation of the local railway population. Somehow more exciting than driving a taxi.
