image for Visiting Americans Devour French Towns Food Reserves
American Eating Tourism Is A Problem For Some

The French town of Antibes is recovering today after a bus load of visiting American tourists went on an eating binge during a visit to the Cote de Azur.

The visitors, from Texas, arrived in the quaint fishing port town at about 7 in the morning, according to local news sources. Cafes were inundated with hungry Americans, who, finding that there were no all you can eat buffets in the town, descended like vultures looking for food.

By 10 am many cafes had reported that they had exhausted stocks of food intended for the week.

One Frenchman called the Americans 'Pigs'.
But things didn't end there.

As lunchtime approached worried restaurant owners began mobilizing extra staff as the gluttonous Texans once more descended on the towns eateries.

''They just could not stop, it was amazing watching these people eat, they were not even tasting the food they were just shoveling into their mouths'' said local reporter Gustavo Le Blanc, who filmed the incident.

By 8 o'clock many restaurants had been forced to close their doors due to running out of ingredients and supplies. Many wait staff were seen strewn about the cobblestoned streets, exhausted, but well tipped. Toilets were blocked and toilet paper was also in short supply.

As the Texan's tour bus departed, a representative from the US Embassy in Paris offered relief for the quaint seaside village and told one local man ''When Americans leave their zip code they like to eat and then destroy bathrooms, obviously we will assist the French with food relief and the rebuilding of toilets.''
