I stood inside of what they called "The Hole" at Alcatraz. The photo of me I am standing inside the Hole.

The worst cells for confinement as a punishment for inmates who stepped out of line were located at the end of D-Block in cells 9–14, known as "The Hole".The cells were devoid of light and colder than the rest of the prison, and prisoners sent here were regularly stripped, beaten, and tortured and often starved, forced to sleep on the cold concrete floor wearing nothing but light underwear.

I also stood in the cell of Alcatraz most notorious prisoner nicknamed "The Bird Man" Knowing I stood where history once took place made the experience all that more cool =D 

Robert Stroud, who was better known to the public as the Birdman of Alcatraz (January 28, 1890 – November 21, 1963), was transferred to Alcatraz in 1942. At a young age he took to pimping and was involved in a murder during a drunken brawl. After terms in McNeil Island and Leavenworth Federal Prison, where he had killed Officer Andrew Turner, he was transferred to Alcatraz, with his sentence extended.

A self-taught ornithologist, he wrote books, and his Digest on the Diseases of Birds is considered a classic in Ornithology. He was confined to D-Block for most of his duration in Alcatraz in solitary confinement,[128] and after a term in the prison hospital, was transferred to the Medical Center for Federal Prisoners in SpringfieldMissouri due to serious bad health.[8] Although he was given the name “The Birdman of Alcatraz’, he was not permitted to keep birds in his prison cell as he had been able to do previously. He died in 1963

There is nothing quite like sitting in an Alcatraz cell staring at a blank wall for 5 minutes. Puts everything into perspective

Pure history and when you visit San Francisco then it is a must place. Breathing the same air what prisoners breathed more than 50 years ago make you think about life different way. At least it happened with me.

 It's not that far away from me. I just need to find a ride.

Completed On: June 14, 2015

It was quite an educational trip. It was really fun and I thought it was worth it. It was interesting to be able to stand in places were the worst criminals used to stand.

(photo of SF, don't have any of the prison) I was initially going to stay in the hotel whilst my parents went to Alcatraz. Ended up really enjoying myself, the tour was really well planned out and thoughtful
