    AH, how frustrating. Convicts get to live here while I am stuck in my one bedroom basement apartment.

    It was too easy to guess.
    It looked like a jail in the very first pictures.

    Wow.. Television in the room, indoor sport halls, a fitness room, stunning mountainous views, modern architecture and the floor seems so clean that I would eat off it. I bet they have a nice list of (free) educational programs as well.

    This is 100x better than my school let alone my house. Austria here I come!!

    Since this prison was highlighted, a new, much nicer one has been built. The new Halden Prison in Norway is about to open. It’s posh:

    The best Jail to stay in is in Orange County California (Theo-lacy). I stayed there 2 months from Jan. to March of 2000. It was still a jail but the weather is nice in Southern California and we got to take classes and the food was freshly grown at the farm in Orange
    County. I worked in the kitchen. The deputies were nice as well. They escorted you to breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had an open barracks like condition but the new wing has a more traditional jail accommodations with three cells attached to one sub-common area. Still you get the one hour a day yard time. Not sure on the mobility routine though for that area. Considering the food is good and the climate being nice it’s not at all bad. I was a stressed out businessman at the time I got sent there. It was a nice relaxing break.
