Pardon My French Guiana

6 years ago

My partner, Bo, and I moved to French Guiana in January of 2013, and quickly discovered we now live in the weirdest place on Earth. It%u2019s a French bureaucracy stuck in the middle of the Amazon rainforest. It%u2019s in South America, but it%u2019s also part of Europe, and virtually all the restaurants are Chinese. The TV keeps us updated on the traffic and weather in Paris, the prices make us think we%u2019re in Geneva, and the capital city makes any other capital in the world look like the densest, most happening place on Earth. The favorite phrase when everything goes wrong %u2013%u2013 and it goes wrong at every opportunity %u2013%u2013 is pas de soucis. No worries. Having been raised a neurotic New York Jew, this doesn%u2019t always work for me, but sometimes, given enough local chocolate and passion fruit juice, I can pretend. At other times, I may curse and get frustrated, but hopefully you can pardon my French Guiana.
