Do you remember when you were younger and people asked you what you wanted to be? And you gave an answer like astronaut, superstar, cowboy, a pokémon... Well, you were wrong. What you should have said was "to become a petanque friend". Just look. You spend your afternoons with friends, crack jokes and throw balls at annoying documentary makers. What a life.
And thanks to Maasmechelen's 'Burgerbudget' these local superstars have all the space they need to keep playing petanque.
And what if it was up to you? If you could steal money from the government, what would you spend it on? Our first purchase would be a membership for the Petanque Friends.
