The Last Colony

 Last Colony
I arrived in my mission, French Guiana (Guyane Francaise) thirteen years ago. Situated in South America but quite different from the Latin America countries in this continent, Guyane Francaise is a “French department overseas” (department d’ outré-mer). A French colony, it became a French “department” in 1946, a transformation proposed by France to help the country develop politically and socially.
