Kourou French Guiana

Salvation Islands are only 7nm from Kourou, soon we anchored in the river. A couple of yachts were anchored in the soft mud at the pontoon and we anchored just outside the channel.

Some friends were already there! The current is very strong, and we stayed with Catlyn to make sure she was secure. We couldn`t wait to explore, but all the shops are closed between 12h00 and 15h30. A couple of Chinese/ Vietnamese shops were open, and we found fresh baguettes. We saw a vendor selling little round watermelons, and craving freshness we went over. But I couldn`t pay R100 for that little thing! The next day we realized that we should have bought that one, it was a bargain, someone else was selling them for R140!
