Luxembourg City, Luxembourg:

After a day of travel, I arrived in Luxembourg City. The highlight of my one day in Luxembourg came when I found my way through a fence and into a 500+ year old tunnel. I emerged on the other side to find a large archaeological dig in progress! My heart leaped! I stood there and admired the monumental dig (about the size of a football field) and the archaeologists working on it.

Pushing away the feeling of trespassing, I introduced myself to what appeared to be the site organizer and told her that I taught archaeology to kids in California. I expected her to tell me I didn't belong here and that I should leave before she called the police. To my surprise and delight, she invited me on a private tour of the dig and the artifacts that they have found!!! I have never been so happy since I arrived in Europe!
