Prisoners have to pay an entrance fee and buy their own cells (the alternative is to sleep outside and die of exposure) prisoners' wives and children often live inside too high quality cocaine is manufactured and sold from the prison.Thomas ended up making a living by giving backpackers tours of the prison—he became a fixture on the backpacking circuit and was named in the Lonely Planet guide to Bolivia. When he was told that for a bribe of $5000 his sentence could be overturned it was the many backpackers who'd passed through who sent him the money.
