So! Last day in San Fran i got organised and took a boat to the island for a tour. The island isn't that big, if u have watched Xmen3 you would be familiar with it ;)
The tour was pretty cheap, only like 25bucks, but that included an audio tour which was great. They gave u these earphones and they talked you thru the prison and told you where to walk. There was lots of guest speakers..guards, previous inmates and other people who lived on the island. Did you know that native indians took over the island for 19months...at some point after the jail closed...for political protesting or something
My brothers friend "Birdman" apparently was held at alcatraz :P...and he DID actually work at the ARC aswelll! true story!
There were other famous inmates such as...Al Capone? i don't really know who these ppl are, but he was done for tax evasion?? doesn't sound very bad to me :S.
Well, theres quite a few pics up for this blog, and a few token ones of me, cause i got told i wasn't taking enough of myself...its a bit tricky when there is only one of me tho!
Off to Vancouver on wednesday!
