Today, on the the 56th Anniversary of Alcatraz closing, we explored one of the most infamous prisons in America. We learned about prison breaks and riots, then more mundane things like solitary bridge and library privileges. We learned that Al Capone walked the same corridors we were. We got to meet a man that actually was an officer while Alcatraz was operational and even told us a few stories! But the biggest thing we learned was that we really really don’t want to go to prison 😉
Et puis ce goût amer est venu tapisser ma bouche.
Je viens de conquérir son coeur, mais c'est louche.
c'est qu'on perd l'amour
Aussitôt qu'on le gagne!
Décidément c'est pas facile
tous les jours.🌾 #vita#tt#flower#art#flores#alcatraz#poem#vlv#das
San Fran Tip - There were no confirmed escapes from Alcatraz. Those that did try, either were immediately caught, drown, or were found tired and washed up on shore. There is a trio that "escaped successfully" but it was never confirmed. Their belongings were found but no evidence that they had hit soil. As far as swimming, it was very possible to swim to shore. There is even an "Escape from Alcatraz" Triathlon that includes the 1.5 mile swim annually.
