Forest is a Latin word indeed.

Fôret in French

The L threw me off. And I thought "forest" or "wood" in Latin was/is "sylva." As in "Pennsylvania." Or "Penn's Woods." :-D

The latin root forest- means "foreigner". Everything outside the ancient cities, covered in woods, was foreigner. In Italian you can say "forestiero" to a foreigner (more used word would be "straniero").

In Spanish "selva" means a dark forest, something like if you are in the jungle or so.

:-)
Forastero means foreing or just someone not from that place or region. Even one person just arrived to a city wherever he comes is a "forastero"

The map is very badly made. It seems Surinam claims 1/3 of Guyana and almost entire French Guyana at first glance. Territorial disputes should have been in contrast colour but not in grey (which is contrast itself, but often represents no-data or something irrelevant, we don't have to be focused on).

I was about to say so. I learned that in French when a ^ appears above a letter it represents a missing s.

At one time I thougt French Guiana was independent. I think somewhat I missed the "French" part, and I was suprised to find that on a inset in a map of France. This makes the newly built bridge over Oyapock river the "longest" bridge in the world, as it connects France and Brazil .

Well, British Columbia isn't part of UK, so it wouldn't be surprising if French Guyana wasn't part of France.

I think most French people would have a hard time in listing all countries that border their own.

I have heard, that e.g. high school leaving examination took place in every French territories at once, at one exact time. It means 2.00 AM in French Guyana. Is that true, or is it just a rumour?

Also, Reunion was the first place where Euro started to be valid in cash transactions at 1.1.2002 /because of time zones/

Well, it's just as much France as European France. The Dutch king has visited the Caribbean parts of the Netherlands recently, followed by a visit to Venezuela, as Venezuela is deemed to be the largest neighbour of the Netherlands.
