In fact eating and drinking played a very big part in our visit to St Laurent and its surrounding areas.  A visit to the detention centre where thousands of French prisoners where sent to serve time in inhumane conditions and if survive populate French Guyana, the home of Papillon before he was sent to Devils Island.
