It looks like the South... Occitanie my love

"It looks like the South. Time is long. And life surely. Over a million years. And always in summer." The South, Nino Ferrer. It sounds like the South, this song smacks of summer, nostalgia, vacations. This imaginary South could take its place in Occitanie. Occitanie was created in 2016 when the Midi-Pyrénées and Languedoc-Roussillon regions where merged. Consequently, it is now one of the largest regions in France.
