So part of the tour was visiting Alcatraz island. I made a separate entry for it because well... It was a separate thing :)

It started out with the ferry to the island, once docked there was a mandatory safety speech. Naturally we missed it :) So we walked around on the island, took a lot of pictures.

It was an interesting experience to say the least. Learned quite a bit about the thing. For example I had no idea it was actually built to house the "bad kids" amongst prisoners (the ones trying to escape and set bad blood). I figured it was only for the worst convicts, which is not the case. I had no idea they stuffed Al Capone in there either btw ;)

Anyway, lots of pictures (includes very nice views of SF) below.

And Sven decided to (again) post all his pictures, makes my life easier :)
