“In Karaosta Prison tourists pay to be treated like prisoners,” points out Dimon.
Dimon spent a night in this former active prison where she was subjected to a mock interrogation, yelled at, pushed around, forced to clean a dirty latrine with a toothbrush, and stand in stress positions.
Ultimately, she slept there overnight on a wooden plank in one of the cells.
“Sure, the guards were just acting but, in this authentic setting, it felt very real and gave me a taste of what life must have been like for the detainees. It was a creepy, comfortless experience … and I loved every minute!,” said Dimon.
Other Dimon’s adventures included getting infected with malaria in Tanzania and eating humongous deep-fried scorpion in Beijing.
