A Western Buddhist's Travels

Sightseeing & detours on the path of enlightenment

It depends on your outlook.

How would you like to visit an island that offers the following, at no cost to you?

All rooms offer 360° views of the surrounding bay.
Unrivaled security system to prevent unwanted visitors.
World renown retreat of the rich and famous.
Catering to a very selective clientele.
All rooms come with their own bars.
All drinks served on the rocks.

Well many famous people over the years took up the US Government’s offer to stay on this island. Such people as Al Capone, and Alvin Karpis the first person in the USA to be declared Public Enemy # 1 were among the many guests of Alcatraz.
