I have visited two amazing friends in france and they introduced me to the industry that leads the whole region back in time: cole-mining.
It was interesting to see those historical places, the old machines and techniques that was used to get the coal. Funfact #1: The cole in the different regions we both grow up are connected. Funfact #2, both families have connections in this business. My father was working in a mine like this – but not in Germany or France.
