Luxembourg Meal

Europe is a like a state from USA or India , which consists of small countries neighboring each other, having faced the wrath of 2 world wars and yet emerged individually to create a distinct style and culture of each.

I have to admit that until I visited this country I did not know about its existence on the world map. In my previous organisation we had to travel a lot as it was a consulting firm which meant constant client facing activities. we travelled so extensively that our small team of 12 people often joked that we have better chances of meeting at the airports than back home.

The other option was our global hub, The Netherlands since it was were our company head office was based. Whenever we had to travel there, the weekends were assured to be lot of fun. There were adhoc day trips, weekend trips planned. We stayed at youth hostels and covered as many places that we could by road. I was not very kicked up about geography ever in school, so honestly I just followed the places that the group decided. 

One such time, over a long weekend of 4 days, we decided to go to luxembourg by euro train. Eurail was a fascination among the Indian camp from the hangover of Dilwale dulhaniya...
So we made to this beautiful country and spent a few days around. It was an experience that faded off into the cobweb of memories until I had a chance to relive them as part of the BM 44 revisit

For today's post the meal above consists of Bouneschlupp (green beans soup), Fresh bread served with Sunflower Seeds Pate and rounded up Quetschentaart / Plum Cherry Pear tart like baked sweet dish.

I always loved geography in school - after english geography and history were my faves so know about the country but you are truly lucky to have experienced so many cultures firsthand than only through books like the rest of us
