Panoramas Luxembourg

What I don’t understand is why in Vista, I could download Autostitch, install it as usually and just do the panorama. In Ubuntu, download was no problem but (I’m sure that’s just me) but installation didn’t work. None of the (limited number of) tricks I know worked. To be improved. But the pictures are great…


A good autumn weekend idea

is to go to Luxembourg. Actually, it proved true again that no activity planned should be cancelled because of a not so great weather forecast. First, everything except pouring rain is good weather (in Belgium) and second, sometimes, the forecast turns out to be mere future telling – not very accurate.

While the weather in Brussels on Saturday morning was grey-foggy, the light took this wonderful golden autumn touch after the three hours train ride to Luxembourg. To be honest, I did not have a very clear idea what to visit in the city going beyond of walking around and around and around. And it turned out that this is more or less what I did a part from taking pictures and marvelling about the fantastic weather.

Of course, I did some other stuff too – visiting the cathedral, the St. Michael’s Church, the Casemattes (part of the ancient fortress not existing anymore today), the ville basse then walking up to the ville haute, walking over the various squares, enjoying the fleemarket and buying finally a small tripod which is the reason why the night picture above is so nice.

I think Luxembourg is a city you do not really need two days to visit for, unless you want to walk all streets worth seeing several times but with such a sunshine, it was just right.
