Welcome to DC. Some of my family came from the little country of Luxembourg in 1850. Now that is a little country. I saw on a travel film that the people from Luxembourg like to eat a lot of waffles, too. So glad that you are going to be with us, I know you will have a good time, everyone here is so nice and helpful.

Drine34,
A thousand years ago, I was stationed in Etain, France (near Verdun) and was able to get to both Luxembourg (love that bridge) and Belgium a lot of times. Both are beatuful countries. I buy Belgium chocolate even today.

Bienvenue, drine34. (je n'etes pas francais, mais je parle la langue un peu, tres mauvais).

I have been told that the Belgians linger for hours over their meals. How civilized!
