New York City is a captivating, awesome, and glamorous empire. There are countless museums, theaters, restaurants, parks and towering skyscrapers. It is a shopping capital of the world. In midtown Manhattan are most of the designer boutiques; Fifth and Madison Avenues are locations of such world-renowned department stores as Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue. FAO Schwartz is one of the largest toy stores in the world. New York is also a world-class culinary experience - with pockets of ethnic restaurants: Chinatown, Little Italy, Little India and Little Brazil. The famous Statue of Liberty sculpture symbolizing the American Dream can be reached by ferry from Battery Park. Once the first stop for over 12 million immigrants, Ellis Island now houses the Museum of Immigration, including the American Immigrant Wall of Honor. The Art Deco Empire State Building is one of the world's best-loved skyscrapers with two observation decks. Also take time to visit the Chrysler Building, Radio City Music Hall, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

The port of Hamilton is a leading offshore business center and main attractions are the island’s temperate climate, pink sand beaches, pastel homes and bucolic landscapes in this idyllic spot in the Atlantic Ocean. Bermuda is famous for high quality British and European imports along with local artistry which includes cedar candlesticks, coral and seashell products, jewelry and local perfumes. Imported goods include Italian and Scottish woolens, European glass, china and perfumes. Front Street is lined with boutiques and duty-free shops. Although there are few bargains, a wide range of British goods may be found at genuine reductions. The Sessions House was built in 1817 when the government was moved from St. George’s to Hamilton. The Golden Jubilee clock tower was added in 1887. Other historic buildings include the Supreme Court, the Cabinet building, Senate Chamber and the Library. Many natural highlights are in Harrington Sound: the Devil’s Hole, the Crystal and Leamington Caves, the Blue Grotto and Spittal Pond.

Devil's Island
11/2/2021
11/2/2021

In addition to being site of France's satellite launching base, French Guiana is perhaps best known for the infamous penal colony to which convicts and undesirables were deported from France. For a long time the small archipelago (the Safety Islands) was known by the name of "Devil's Island." The three islands - Devil's Island, Ile Royale and Ile St. Joseph - are about one hour by boat from the mainland. Their notorious convict settlements were built in 1852. On the almost inaccessible Devil's Island, political prisoners like Alfred Dreyfus were held in isolation. The prisoner who became most famous was doubtless Henri Charrière, who was immortalized in the movie "Papillon" for supposedly being the only convict who managed to escape from "the Green Hell." Of 80,000 prisoners sent to the islands, some 50,000 died here. Visit the prison ruins or the Kourou Space Centre.
