22 May La Pétanque

La pétanque, or Boules, is an old favorite game played in most city parks throughout France. Many take it very seriously and play in leagues several times a week, others play it only during summer gatherings with friends and family. It’s always fun to watch and listen to the interactions between players. The goal is to throw the steel balls as close as possible to the small wooden ‘cochonnet’. Here are a few snapshots from the courts at Jardin du Luxembourg yesterday…
