Sunday the 25th of July, we went on the Islands with the Boeing Team, a great day. Fishing for some and walking and swimming around the islands with the others. No fish were catched but good memories. We came back with the sunset to the mainland.
Dear all, we have a very bad new about our good friend and colleague Pierre FAVIN. He passed away this yesterday at his home as he was suffering of cancer. Pierre started at FLS as a Jungle Guide in November 1988 and was the Logistic Department Responsible up to today. Before everything, Pierre was a true good friend to all of us, always ready to help and pleased to do it. It's hard to find words to express all the sadness we feel but Pierre is in peace now and he will not be forgotten. To his wife Cathy and his family, we express our deep condolences. FLS team.
Following the successful lauch of VA230, last weekend we spent a great amount of time for the preparation of the "India Day" with team ISRO. The lunch was amazingly good. Also the songs and the atmosphere at l'Oasis in Kourou. An awesome day.
The ISRO team was all over French Guyana last weekend, we went to St Laurent du Maroni on Friday for a boat tour near St-Jean and a visit of the infamous "Camp de la Transportation". The next day was all about shopping in Cayenne with a lunch break at the botanical garden. On Sunday we had a great day starting at Cacao Village with the beautiful market colors and tastes and a one hour jungle walk near Kaw.
Saturday the 4th of June we went to the lac Pali again because it is so amazing. Part of the boat trip was rainy but nice, the forest reveal it's best nature between rain and sunshine. Some saw the monkeys with yellow hands that we hear in the branches.
The next day we had the chance to share food and songs with the ISRO team after visiting the zoo. A great day to be remembered.
