The obligatory tour. I tried to do the tour yesterday but it was sold out which is why I did a couple things that I hadn't thought to do.

Three times a day a boat from the Waterfront brings about 200 people over who are then distributed to buses and taken around the island for story and photo ops.

The last stop is the prison block where an ex-political prisoner does the tour. It is all well organized, they've done it thousands of times, but also chaotic with so many people.

It seems the goal of the narrators was to get through it with the least possible aggravation. Our group was very aggravating to the guides (and me too!). We had two different translators traveling with their own groups who where both shouting over the guides as they spoke, one having a group from Brazil speaking Portuguese and the other a group from Spain speaking Spanish. Yikes.
