Looking for Dolphins


Liz found this hammerhead shark on the dock in the Kourou River, it had drowned and been discarded by local fishermen.

Pseudo panorama of Ile St Joseph, where most of the photos were taken. The main prison was here, "Papillon" was supposed to have been incarcerated here, but it was all a lie, he was never here at all, he was in prison, but in Cayenne.
