Here is Alexis, alias "XL", one of the most friendly and talkative Provençal guys on the block. With a New Zealand birth certificate, Ukrainian last name and his French family's coat of arms tatooed on his shoulder, he is not your typical local color kind of guy. In fact, of all the wacky and unique jobs in the world, XL is very proud of the time he spent working as a - get this - New York cab driver. "I know I was born to drive a New York cab. I love talking to people and I love that crazy city that is one of a kind in this world. I miss that job so much," XL says. This was years ago when XL moved to New York and fell in love not only with the American way of life but also with his wife Jennifer. They moved back to Provence together to be closer to the French side of their family and started an American food truck that is by far the best I have yet to come across in Provence - Brooklyn Foodz. Born and raised in Manhattan, XL's wife Jennifer is of Puertan Rican and Polish descent. With such a variety of cultures and nationalities in their family tree, it's no surprise they named their sweet and talkative little girl (whose birthday is today by the way!)... Gaïa.
