Petanque – a French pastime !!
As we made our way from Monaco to Issoudun, we saw what is a familiar sight to us now, a group of people standing around a small patch of hard soil, each of them with small steel balls, throwing them around from a stationary spot – all just like how we played marbles when we were young. The difference here was that there were very few young people playing this game and most of the players are often in the 50’s & 60’s!!
