Steve wanted to visit the music museum so we decided to sleep in for a change. On the way there we pass a Segway tour place and decided to stop in and check the rates. The only one we could afford was a sunset one and we didn't think we would have time to work it in due to things we wanted to do the last two nights we were there. So we grab a flyer and head off. We get to the music museum and none of the staff spoke a lick of English! Luckily we figured out how much it was ( more than advertised online :/) and pay the lady. We get done with the first floor and it really had more to do with dancing than it did with music. I did learn that people took there balls very seriously back then. The proper attire was a must and here comes a fun fact... the fans ladies carried actually were used to signal if they wanted to dance or not and they also had a more risqué purposes at times too. Just thought that was pretty cool! Also they had this rhythm game on a computer and I out scored Steve and he is a musician! Steve being Steve wasn't amused and took another a stab at it... He got a perfect score. I said "Oh Bollocks!" ( a popular English term I'm bringing back with me) Well the second floor turned out to be where the actual museum was and it had tons of cool instruments and they had headphone stands where you could listen to a specific instruments in the room. Well you would think the only attractions they have would work correctly... They didn't but hey life goes on right!
It was a very cool museum and I really enjoyed it! Steve asked if I could have one instrument in the museum what would it be? I said obviously a harp so then my angel Amanda can play it for me!!! Hahah so corny I know but none the less true story! Steve of course wanted them all, little greedy I thought but I'm also not a musician either :)

So we take out packed lunch out to a busy street bench and dig in! It is really fun to just sit and people watch sometimes! We were there just chillen for about an hour! In the way back we decided to go a different route through another park by the water and it was really cool! There was a lot more people in this park than the other one! We headed back to the hostel cooked some dinner and caught a quick nap.

Earlier that morning I had found an outside theatre show that started at 8 I wanted to see. So we make our way down there and sit right in the front on pieces of real sod they had laid down... I found it pretty cool but a bit weird. Well the show was scheduled to start at 8:10 but I don't think it started until after 9 to be honest. We met a couple that were next to us who were really cool people who helped pass the time! The show starts and it was very very different but really good! You will have to view the video if it loads... Keep your fingers crossed! After the show finished I turned to Steve and said if this doesn't make us cultured nothing will!

We decided to get a gyro for our second dinner and take a walk outside of the touristy places. We walked for about an hour just straight out of town just to walk I guess. It was pretty cool to see a different side of Prague though! Our deciding factor on when to turn back was when a drunk guy asked us for a fag ( cigarette). we realized we probably weren't in the right place anymore! We didn't get back until after 12 and were both really really tired so we just hit the sack.
