February 10, 2008

Itwas a beautiful weekend in Luxembourg...sunny and about 50-52 degrees. We went down into the old town (The Grund) of Luxembourg on Sunday. You can walk along part of the wall of the old fortress that surrounded Luxembourg. The pictures of the girls are taken along here.

The last picture is of the Buurgbrennen festival. This is an annual tradition where they light big bonfires to officially say goodbye to winter and welcome in spring. The big brush pile and cross in the last picture were lit on fire after dark. (We did not stay to actually see this as the girls needed to get home! ) This is a social event for families with food and events taking place all throughout Luxembourg within the city and the many smaller villages.
