Earlier I posted some photos of some gentlemen at Jardins du Luxembourg that showed me the ropes of pétanque here. I heard from a reader that has the Pétanque America blog. Check out his blog to find more information on the game. The evening we spent at the Palais Royal with our Birmingham friends, I walked up on this cute group playing as the sun set. They were equally as spirited but added a new "accessory" in the other hand!
