I thought I'd keep going with my Europe posts, since I stopped on day 5 because of the craziness of the holidays... for a recap of the first five days, check here: one, two, three, four, five
After breakfast we walked up to the U.S. Embassy where our friend Honza worked. The sun was finally out and it made Prague look so different and even more beautiful!
Love the color of the buildings against the blue sky!
As part of Honza's job, he gets to help host any American dignitaries that come into town... and other things that have slipped my mind at the moment. His English is so good- it's amazing. And he knows a lot about American politics from working there.
We decided to stop by the Prague Museum of Music, where they had really old instruments. It was pretty fascinating. They were also having a Beatles exhibit on the main floor.
It was kind of low budget, Ringo looks oriental and John looks like he's been fake baking, but still fun.

We decided to walk home while Steve and Karen went a different way... We walked along the river. It was so beautiful. Why is water so pretty?
I wish we would have paddle boated...
Little shops selling open-faces by the bucket load.

That night we went to Italian food with the sales reps from Midwest. The crazy thing was that both Alicia's dad and Drew's dad went on their missions to Finland! Weird right? They went after my mom moved away, so she didn't know them. Also funny that in real life we all live within ten minutes of eachother.
Of course after we got back to the hotel, we slipped out to the KFC to use their wifi and check in with the babysitter. I loved the quiet streets of Prague at night with the buildings all lit up.
