Hello everyone and welcome,

South by Southwest (SXSW) is in Austin. People are coming from all over the world to participate. It is just unreal! It is a blend of music, film and interactive festival. The whole town is full of activities. France is represented too by Le French Tech Club who took over the French Legation Museum for seven days. Among the group many people are from Angers the Sister City of Austin. The town where the Heart of Texas Petanque Club was welcomed by the Mayor to fortified the connection between Austin and Angers.  So today when we arrived and to play our weekly game the french people started to gather  around us and could not believe that the game was played in Austin. And of course since the game is part of the culture, so they started to play with us. Sweet! Chef Rémi Fournier with Michelin-starred Chef Gérard Bossé are running the hight class French Bistro for five more days only.  You could one of the lucky people to experience their excellent cuisine.  Also Alain Fouquet the Deputy Mayor of Culture of Angers is there too. Most of the events are free the whole week go check it out. We be there playing petanque. http://frenchtechclub.com  And off course as luck would have it, the nephew of Claude D. Valois the creator of the very famous Star Master Petanque club was there.  We also had games at Paggi Square.
Vive la France!

A+ Love Arsene.
