Jungle (2of2): Settlement “Caw” in the Marshalls
Kaw or Caux (meaning marsh in French) is a village of about 40 inhabitants. We spent 1 night there.
The village is only accessible by boat.
Since only accessible by boat, how did these cars got there ?
Our accommodation, mosquito-free as announced in the Travel Agency 🙂 We had to improvise a bridge
This abandoned church, perfectly fit for a horror movie, host a bunch of bats during the day
The little beasts went out parting at night as you know. They flew in circles and quite low. Fixing focus at 0.7 m, crunching and cradling head in my legs, praying and shooting a lot, the bell rang a few times !
Interaction with locals was at times easy with my poor french, most nodded when asked “Photo ?”
Pass-time of kids, like anywhere: football.
The Village is literally 4 streets
Dinner on the only restaurant. Fish scales and lenses, eatable. And yes, there was WiFi !!
Worth mentioning, it was the carnival week in French Guyana, and this village had their once-a-year disco (DJ mixer, big boxes, to be heard in all marshals area). No pics allowed, so only the day after:
Needles to say, the simplicity in which these people live. Any object around the city seems to be taken out of a apocalyptic film.
07:00 AM our guide was already pushing us.
On the way back to our comfort, a last incursion in the river, this time much more closed vegetation.
There was a fleeting chance to see monkey crossing the trees, is not the shot of my life 🙁
All in all, and despite some bites, a cool experience ! Thanks for the fun with colleagues !
And finally safe in Cayenne, an european dish:
