Jardins du Luxembourg

Virgina in Paris posted some delightful pictures while she met with players in Paris' foremost public petanque locale: the Luxembourg Gardens.

The people she played with hailed from Martinique, Spain, Portugal and "the hexagone".

I love the coat rack!

WEll I am so flattered that you included a photo from my blog. Actually I am from Birmingham , AL, USA and here for 3 weeks! The men I chatted with and photographed were absolutely delightful. I enjoyed including the "mini series" of their photos on my Paris blog.
I hope I reported correctly regarding your game. Correct me please if I am wrong.

Call us when you get back. There are a couple of folks in Vestavia that want to start a pétanque group.
With what you learned in Paris you'll fit right in!

Can someone explain the difference in quality between the cheap boules and the standard ones? Just a beginner here - and don't want to invest lots of money - but looking to have some fun. Are they the same weight, etc?

Thanks!
