Chiang Mai womens' Prison

well, they have taken all the prisoners away to the country, to the mens' prison in Mae Rim (the men have been moved to a new facility) and now the old buildings are throbbing with life and schoolkids

there used to be over 2300 inmates squashed in

I think there is a big Royal or minister coming too, to open the new venture, as roads are closed and police everywhere

but nobody is sure what the plan for the place is

anyone know?

Never saw a bit of this driving down Narawat Bridge Road or Toon Hotel Rd today. Traffic is lighter in fact as it's Sunday.

No idea about any of this (first I've heard of it) but I expect that means that excellent little restaurant just opposite will be closed as well since it was staffed by day-release prisoners.

at the moment, yes

and thanks for that extra pic

they must have had about 30+ up top, and another 30 or more below; there is a separate cell at the end for some reason, altough it shares the facilities

Just popped in again for a nose around and a pic

one of the cells, just a great big room, all concrete



one of the sleeping cells, they must have crammed over 200 in at night




and the washing and toilet facilities



this was almost an art installation, I wish they would save it

the row of personal lockers




each one has a different feel and pics from magazines; some were just lined with plain white paper



another




another



quite amazing and also sad

I talked to one of the guys sitting around pretending to be a guard today

looks like they are going to demolish the whole shaboodle and build a mock up of the palace that used to be there, in the old days

a new tourist must-see

a ridiculous idea but I am sure the Chinese groups will love it

If I had somewhere to put those lockers, I could make a great tourist site, and it is all original art

Wonder if they demolished the solitary confinement cells first.


Or perhaps those lockers are them.
