FEATURED PHOTO - (a worldatlas.com photo)

This very focused man (in the crouched position) just carefully tossed a hollow, but somewhat heavy metal ball at at a small target some 30 feet away. He's playing in a game of P�tanque, a sport that originated in 1907 in La Ciotat, France. The casual form of the game (pronounced "pay-tonk") is played by about 17 million people in France, mostly during their summer vacations. There are about 375,000 serious players licensed with the F�d�ration Fran�aise de P�tanque et Jeu Proven�al, and some 3000 in England. And yes, they have an official website!
