Contest #210 answer: Saint-Laurent du Maroni, French Guiana

In French Guiana, at the borders of the Marowi (Marowijne) river, lies the village of Saint-Laurent du Maroni, a.k.a ‘Le Petit Paris’. In the centre of the picture you’ll see the ‘Camp de la Transportation’, which was one of the locations where Henri Charrière, ‘Le Papillon’ (Butterfly in French), was held in custody.

His story became famous in 1973 with the making of the movie with the same name, starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman.
