Where: The Rock!
When: Morning of Monday, August 14, 2006
Notes: This was the last big planned activity for our 13 day trip.

This was excellent, and we're all glad that we were able to add it to the list of things we did.

You could find parts the place that definitely reminded you of "The Rock" with Sean Connery. One can only imagine just how horrible it must have been for the inmates stationed here, especially when you see how small and start the quarters were.


We were fortunate to have Mr. Dooley along.  As a corrections officer, he was able to add all sorts of insights into what prison life really is like, and helped us understand some of the things we saw.

Some of our boys seemed much more at home behind bars than others.
