This "club" of pétanque (i.e., boules) players is
hidden away in the 15th arrondissement
in Paris. Thanks to my wonderful friend and
traveling companion Genie
(who does the blog Paris and Beyond)
for introducing me to this place.
The men and women who play here have
obviously been part of the club for
many years—there's so much warmth and
camaraderie on display, yet
they take the game very seriously.
I learned a lot while I was watching them.
