beef, cheese, peas, beer, and whiskey

edinburgh castle prison
My favorite part of the castle was the prison. Each prisoner used a hammock to sleep in. They were like bats, hanging from the top and swaying, as if on a swing. Each prisoner received a ration of a pound of beef, a pound of cheese, a pint of peas, a couple pints of beer, and a glass of whiskey. Same ingredients, same utensils, same recipe, every single day. For entertainment, they drank beer and whiskey. For more entertainment, they played checkers. For even more, they played after they drank.
