It's not a hill, it's a mountain ...(U2 noline on the horizon)

10/10/11

Many of the hills we have in french Guiana are called "mountains"...which obviously they are not. They are given names which are more a way to remember which hills and where they are located. For example FLS was with some GALILEO ESA team members on Monkeys mountain trail this sunday, but the height of this "mountain" is 140 meters only ! And unfortunatly, we did not see any monkey...It was a nice walk anyway and the view at the top of the Hill was just wonderful with at the horizon: Devil's Islands, Ariane Tracking stations, A5 and A4 launch pads...a little bit too far to see anything of the Soyuz Launch pad but sure there will be people in that place to watch the first Soyuz launch next 20th of October.
