JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks? Carlos: The nicest thing would have to be that we went
out monday through friday and had weekends off
of work. We worked 8 hours a day and came home

day. Also the showers always had hot water. The
worst was that when using the restroom everyone
could see and some people did stare.
