Luxembourg City

Luxembourg was a confusing country to visit. I couldn't easily conceptualize it as a place, France looks French and Belgium looks Belgian, but Luxembourg looks...Luxembourgish? I didn't have enough previous exposure to know what I was getting into. It is such a mixture of old and new, middle and modern, far and new. Not to mention the Luxembourgish language which sounds (to an English speaker) like soft Dutch and hard French.
