The second reason to be cheerful to be here in Kourou is a visit to the European Space Agency Site. Due to language difficulties I missed the early part of the tour, but by way of compensation allowed free entry. The whole event was a little underwhelming, as the whole place looks a little dog-eared, and all inside images were through glass not making them of the best, but worth the effort on a bright, sunny day!
I would say from here most things are self-explanatory
so will leave the images to do the talking.

Once again taken through glass so not the best of images.
