St. Laurents, piece of France in South America!

A piece of France in South America! The small town of St Laurent in French Guyana is on the Eastern border of Suriname. It can be reached from Albina, the boder town of Suriname. The only way to reach this place from Albina is to cross the river Marowine by boat! You cross the river and you are in Europe, virtually, in South America!
It houses the famous prison where 'Papillon' was kept and the film 'Papillon' was also filmed here!
My watercolour painting of a street in this town is here, 37x56 cm on Arches 640gms Paper.
