Clever burgers

We were listening to a programme about Luxembourg which had some fascinating little bits of trivia.  Luxembourg has the second highest per capita income in Europe.  They mostly make money by being a tax haven - so joke for people visiting Luxembourg is "Are you going to visit your money". Apparently the tax haven status doesn't make Luxembourg many friends from countries like England.  Not that they care.  One of the things that made us laugh is that the Luxembourgers (that is what they are called) was when they built a new bridge over the river Moselle.  To test the bridge needed several tanks - but the Luxembourg army has only one tank so they asked Belgium to borrow some tanks to test a bridge.  
Bridge passed test.  Belgium tanks returned unharmed.  
Does look like beautiful place to visit burgers
