The latest from Tre - 11/18/08
Greetings from Herlong, CA. This place is positioned in a valley with mountains surrounding in all directions. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets have blessed me while sitting barefoot in the grass they only recently planted. Up until about a month and half ago it was all dirt and rocks.
A yoga class is offered 5 days a week as well as Pilates and other fitness/wellness modalities. There is even a wellness library.
On the recreation yard (which is where I spend most of my time) there is a huge dirt walkin' path (twice around is a mile). In the center are 2 baseball/softball fields, a full soccer field, 3 basketball courts, 6 handball/racquetball courts, a volleyball pit, horseshoe pit, exercise bars and equipment and 2 bocci lawns (my Italian ancestors will be very pleased). There is an indoor rec. hall with a basketball court, many cardio machines, a ping pong table, fitness rooms (where we do yoga), an arts and crafts room and best of all... a music/band room.
Yoga classes... $0
Cardio machines... $0
Three basketball courts... $0
Realizing that this is a letter from a prison inmate who was convicted of domestic terrorism... priceless.
My only consolation is that he can't get vegan meals.
