13th of May in 2018:
Another sunny day in Belfast. I can’t stand the warm temperature anymore. I even got epistaxis or well-known as the nosebleed. Having breakfast, uploading some blog entries and watching series started my Sunday. „„Prison itself is a tremendous education in need of patience and perseverance.

Early in the afternoon, we left to visit Crumlin Road Gaol Prison. Once there, everyone got a paper bracelet put on so we can participate in the tour. The guide told a lot about the history of the prison and showed us the different places where the prisoners lived. We even visited the execution room where the felons were hanged. After we were led into a tunnel, the tour ended after about 1½ hours. We briefly visited the souvenir shop and then left the prison.
Since I had eaten relatively little for breakfast, I bought a sandwich at Subway and then we go to the home where Jenny cooked for us today.
Today we wanted to check out the Crumlin Road Gaol at 2:00 pm, so I was able to sleep longer today. I slept until 12:30pm and at 1pm Giang, Son, Jenny, Dominik and I started our way to the Crumlin Road Gaol. Our first stop was the Belfast City Hall because we wanted to pick up Tim there. „The Crumlin Road Gaol“ weiterlesen
Day 43 13.05.2018 Sunday
On Sunday I’ve visited the Crumlin Road Gaol Prison. Unfortunately, we couldn’t participate in a night/paranormal tour because we weren’t enough people (15 were needed) for the tour. Therefore the day tour was the only possibility.
At the beginning of the tour, we saw the rooms where the prisoners had to take off their personal clothes and let their hair get shaved off. Then they took us to the director’s room and the key storage room. And then we entered the prison.
It was like the type of prison you usually know from movies. I think this was my first time that I saw one from inside with my own eyes. „HM Prison Crumlin Road“ weiterlesen
