Thinking of visiting France? Or do you just want to see what it looks like, or relive fond memories? Take a virtual tour with RFI's photographic map (below - if you have problems viewing it, try a different browser). It shows beauty spots, historic monuments and some of the day-to-day reality of life in the country. If you'd like to contribute photos of places not represented, send to english.service@rfi.fr. Mark them "Interactive map".

Slideshow - Guadeloupe, French West Indies

Did you think that France is just part of continental Europe? Wrong! It stretches around almost the entire globe. Officially the islands of Reunion, in the Indian Ocean, and Guadeloupe and Martinique, in the  West Indies, are as much parts of France as the Paris region, Ile de France. Tahiti and other islands in the Pacific are also part of la République, although with slightly different status. Not everyone living in the islands likes this arrangement. Sarah Elzas reported on strikes that affected some overseas départements in 2009 and took some photos while she was there.
