This weekend was my 5-year Insead (MBA) reunion. It was amazing to see all the people – many for the first time since graduation. To add to the memories, the evening party was hosted in the Fontainebleau castle. A visual masterpiece, and a phenomenal party!
To continue celebrating Stuart’s birthday, we went to watch ‘Pricilla – the Queen of the Desert’ – the Musical. The show was crazier and more fun I could’ve wished for. At the end, the entire audience was at their feet. So great!
Live music, drinks, friends and bales of hay. What else could you need for a nice night out?
Another fabulous Luxembourg festival: Vianden Nut Festival. The whole day dedicated to walnuts.
Just take everyhting you can imagine that can be made of walnuts – and multiply it by two.Only thing you can’t find anywhere is a nutcracker. We have found our market space for next year.
The highight for many in this festival is the nut liquer. And the traditional ways is to smuggle in some small cups and drink it on the streets.
It’s all quite nuts, really.
Small country need small festivals. Few are more bizarre than the Duck Race.
Concept is simple: take 10,000 rubber ducks, sell them to people for charity, dump them to the river and see which duck comes to the finishing line first. The lucky owner of that one wins a car.
All ducks are the same. No tuning allowed.
Half of Luxembourg showed up.
Although not everyone showed similar enthusiasm.
Suspence is building up
And here they come. All 10,000 of them
Some of the ducks need some help
At the end, it’s all for charity. No other reason really.
My duck did not win.
