Caesar: About 20 seats, You were seperated by glass, and had to talk through a phone.
Liz: metal seat, thick glass, and a phone. not impressive.

Nick: there is a glass clear wall that separates you and the visitor with a phone on each side to talk on and it was a limited time you can talk before i was made to go back in the cell to sit and wait or sleep or exercise or talk
Teresa: The visiting enviroment was somewhat impersonal as you were in a room with several inmates at a time in what can be described as stalls where your visitor was on the other side of a piece of thick glass in a separate room and you communicated through the glass by using telephone like instruments.
