French Guiana or Guyane, is unlike the rest of South America. It is part of France and uses the same currency (Euro) and flag. They even speak the same language. It is also the most expensive country in Sth America.
This photo is of the 'Devils Island', the prision island made infamous by the book and movie 'Papillon'.

Note: Neither Kiwis nor Aussies need a visa for French Guiana.
