Weekend Road Trip
I have to say, one of the coolest things about living in Europe is that your weekend road trip destinations can be Germany, Luxembourg, and Brussels--which is where we spent the last few days. Thought I would post a few photos of the visit with my folks who finally arrived, despite their cancelled flight.
This is the cathedral where Charlemange is buried.
The cathedral ceiling. It was less gothic on the inside, and inspired more by the Ottomans, looked almost Turkish.
Check out the emblem above the door, for all you illuminati fans out there.
Cold, wet but not too miserable in Luxembourg City.
The next morning dawned bright and beautiful. Luxembourg City feels like a charming mix of Switzerland, Italy, Germany and France with its architecture and great hills.
Last week we went to Venlo in the Netherlands to see the once-every-ten-years-horticulture show called Floriade. Despite the crappy weather, it was a great place to take flower-lovers.

Is it me, or does this orchid look like Jay Leno?
Yes, that is all orchids.
