The Prison
As we waited for the ferry that would take us to Alcatraz island, we enjoyed some local entertainment.

The funny thing is, we saw street entertainers just like these in Paris.

Seals sing, dance, and just stink up the air.

Very cool tour.  As you walk, you receive a walkman, head set, and tour cassette.  The tape walks you through the prison describing what you are seeing and who was jailed here. Alcatraz_13.jpg (32554 bytes)

This is the hole.  When you are really bad, you get to check into this lovely room.  Trust me, you want to behave. Alcatraz_14.jpg (21080 bytes)

The tour tape told us that prisoners could hear parties, especially on new year's eve.
