JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Lily: i don't remember
padilla: No
Dawn: The nicest thing about the c pod was that it was bigger and there was more room for walking. The worst part of it was it was always cold. The best part of the gen pod was there was carpet instead of cement, a limit of 20 women, real toilets.
