The Friday party at the bowling place was good. Everyone from the next Ariane lauch could meet and spend a good time. Saturday with the SSL team and Sunday with 8 persons group from ESA, AE, RUAG were all for kayak and good food.
We had a great BBQ Saturday with the SSL Team! On Sunday some went in Cayenne (SSL), others to a kayak trip on Montsinery river (ESA). A good day weekend but it wasn't over; we went flyboarding on Monday with some OHB's.
Part of the group did the 10 km walk in the forest and the other joined us around 12. We had some time to swim and play volleyball before lunchtime. A paëlla cooked in the carbet which was delicious!
