Luxembourg Trip

Schueberfouer

This large fair is a yearly event in Luxembourg City and lasts between 2 and 4 weeks. We managed to catch the tail end of it.

Note my convincing appearance as a totemic shaman in that last picture.

Coyote Cafe

One of the few pubs in Luxembourg that have made an effort to appear as something other than a plain room with a bar and tables in.

The Cellar Bar

This is the famous "Keller", or Cellar Bar, in Clervaux, situated – you guessed it – in the cellar of a hotel. It’s only open on weekends from 22:00 to 3:00 and a little quieter than in its heyday. Music ranges from blues to rock and the occasional glitch into other areas but it’s generally good. Back in the day, this author used to frequent it often, and interract in a variety of philosophical quandaries with other unsavoury denizens. Today, it still features on the must-see list of any trip to Luxembourg, although evenings there tend to be less wild.

The other couple in the pictures are childhood friend Serge and his wife Tatiana.

Miscellanous

And the oddball section for stuff that didn’t fit anywhere else: an areal map of Wiltz, a weirdly shape bottle of red we guzzled, a cute statue, and a poster in a Belgian pub.

Voice of the Seraph

Here are a handful of haphazard pictures from a one-off live role-playing event in south Wales. The event was called Dick Britton and the Voice of the Seraph and was set in a pulp/adventure, post WWI setting. It was very, very funny.
