French Guiana


Contributor Travel and Drones brings us this excellent drone video of French Guiana, an overseas department of France which lies on the eastern coast of South America, between tiny Suriname and giant Brazil.  The video opens with shots of  Saint Laurent de Maroni, FG's second-largest city.  Starting at the :45 mark, you'll see Devil's Island, the notorious penal colony where the French army officer Alfred Dreyfuss was famously imprisoned in 1895, followed by shots of the capital city of Cayenne and the European "spaceport" at Kourou.
