What Else Went On

This morning, Grand Duke Henri received Mars di Bartolomeo, the new president of the Chambre des Députés, at the palais for an audience. Shortly afterwards, the two gentlemen were joined by most of the other members of the Bureau of Luxembourg's recently elected parliament. Together with Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, the Grand Duke then hosted a reception to mark the formation of new parliament. The website of the Chambre has another tiny picture of the Grand Duke and Mars di Bartolomeo and the website of the cour has an entire gallery of visuals.

As it turns out, I was on the right track when it came to the Christmas visits conducted by Princess Marie and Hereditary Princess Sophie this week. I'm a bit shaky on the timeline and when they were where but the two ladies visited all of Liechtenstein's homes for the elderly and nursing homes as well as the local hospital. As it is tradition, the brought along little presents from the Princely Family for everyone. Visuals of the visits are located at Vaterland.

Economic missions to China have always been some of my least favourite as they always had a rather low turnout of information and visuals and this time is no different; we might have even hit a new low. Maybe it's my inability to properly work my good old friend google with Chinese characters but apart from that one picture I mentioned yesterday, there only seems to be one other tiny one on the website of the Ministre de l'Économie. I guess we will need to count on the official website to grace us with a few visuals sometime during the next days or weeks.
