Devil’s Island, French Guiana

O-fish-ally on island time.

Part of French Guiana, the three Iles du Salut, or Islands of Salvation, were a much feared penal colony for the most notorious French criminals.  The movie “Papillon” tells of one such criminal. Too violent for me, I didn’t watch it.  

We went ashore but we didn’t walk to the prison. Too hot, humid, hilly and rocky.  I did try to get the monkeys to come out for a picture, but you’ll see they like the shade too!

We were tendered back and forth to the ship.
