My booking was made by a relative living close by. Had I seen the cell I was condemned to, I would never have taken it. The beige and brown room with a badly worn sofa, no wardrobe, no dining table, absolutely minimal provisions (not even a bottle of milk), miserably thin pillows, revealed yet another pleasure by night: eyeball searing strip fluorescent lighting. It was bad when you were upright; lying down, Guantanamo level. No bedside lamp. And all it cost was $140 a night! Adding to the stress was the 5:00am wake-up each morning: the truck drivers in the adjoining cells who had a smoko at the conveniently placed outdoor table, just outside my paper-thin door and the solitary window.
