I certainly took a roundabout way to get here, but it was worth the trip. Luxembourg is rather beautiful, if not a bit expensive.
Arrival was easy at the beautifully modern, though rather underutilized airport. The immigration officer couldn’t understand why I had transited London to get to Luxembourg only to be leaving tomorrow. He rolled his eyes and stamped my passport, as apparently being crazy is not sufficient grounds to deny entry. The bus to the city center was a piece of cake and pretty cheap at only 1.50 Euro.
I walked around town to find my way to the hostel, snapping a few photos (to be uploaded when bandwidth isn’t quite so expensive) and meeting a few other folks on their way to the hostel. I must say that I’m incredibly impressed by the hostel. Immaculately clean and a very nice place. The only problem it has is being at the bottom of a hill, but that gives it a great backdrop against the fortifications above. I had dinner with a guy I met here and now off to bed after a very, very long but entertaining day.
