Devils Island, French Guiana overview

The most notorious of the three Salvation Islands, Devil's Island functioned for generations as a French penal colony. Once known as the "Dry Guillotine" because so many prisoners died there, the island today seems haunted by the spirits of former prisoners. Henri Charriere, better known as "Papillon," claimed to be the only prisoner ever to escape the Island.

I think this was my favourite stop. It was more like the jungle I expected I. The Amazon. The insects were singing, the monkeys were all over, and the agouti were about. It was very hot. The history was interesting, but I lived the plants and animals
