Such an accurate description of Luxembourg. Truly amazing! And thank you for the hint that you have to see where your parents are coming from. This is actually something I procrastinate for quite a while already. My father's family comes from Poland and I avoid going there under any circumstances even though I know I finally might understand where all this trouble caused in the past comes from. Well...
Anyway, thanks for reminding me.
P.S. Happy for you that you reconnected with your friend.
