Ponies will come tomorrow, to brighten up your weekend.
So, Luxembourg. I wish I could do emojis!
Aoife met us immediately off the train and we proceeded to take a little bus from the train station to her apartment. Lemme just say: if you ever find yourself somewhere in the vicinity of France and Germany, you absolutely have to meet Aoife. She was an amazing host and welcomed us into her house with open arms. She's also incredibly knowledgeable and a very willing tour guide.
Lux is a great city. From the technology to the people to the layout, everything was just amazing. For example, she was able to purchase the bus tickets online, while sitting on the bus, which operates on a punishable honor system.
I get a little foggy on the sequence, but I think we dropped our bags and headed back downtown. The first night, we had a great dinner at a Japanese restaurant with the best scheme ever: everyone is $25, plus drinks. You pick five items five times (if you make it that far) and they bring everything out in rounds. I ordered multiples of the same things, because the food was just that good.

|He's so cute. I made him stick his hand in a random box.|

The Luxembourg American Cemetery and Memorial:
|"The dead of this cemetery admonish to peace."|
|People still visit these graves, seventy years later.|
|"An unknown German soldier."|
|Wolter is a family name.|
|Lux berries. I picked them off the sides of an unearth castle wall.|
And I ate them.
|I just couldn't.|
|Fun fact: I hate shoes. Oh, it's freezing out? Don't care.|
