Empire-occupied France.

Spent one year in Derby (they pretended they teach Computer Science, at the University) in 1995, after 2 years spent in South of France (Aix-En-Provence) where I got a real degree.

I have been in that region several times for holidays. I visited Korbach and of course Bad Arolsen where the roots are of our dutch royal family.
