cool building!

So today we really wanted to see the dancing building, which was somewhere in Prague but we didn't know when. But before we did that we went to buy our tickets for a black light show, something we heard that we couldn't miss while in Prague. We bought tickets to see Golem that night. After that we headed to the dancing building. It was pretty sweet. Not much to do but look at it. It's fun to look at though.

For a while before this Lori and I had seen paddle boats and always wanted to go on one. So today we decided was that day. It was only 5 euros each to rent a paddle boat for an hour so we figured why not? It was cool, we had a nice view of the Charles Bridge from the river. We did that for an hour and it was so awesome, we had a blast.

I'd definitely recommend doing that, and if you can get 4 people its even cheaper because they charge by boat not by person.

After that we did some wandering around Prague and then went back to our hostel where we made ourself dinner. It was definitely..interesting. It was broccoli soup and it looked disgusting but tasted alright. Then we left to go see Golem. Words do not describe what that experience was like. It was definitely not what we were expecting. It was about Christians and Jews fighting, the Christians blamed the Jews for the plague and then the Jewish priest called upon Golem to help save the Jews. Golem is a giant monster. It made no sense at all, and there were English subtitles and Czech and English doesn't translate exactly...so a lot of it made no sense, and it was a musical, so it was all singing.

When we got back there was a big group of people playing kings cup, so we joined in, it was hilarious. A bunch of English, Australians, Canadians and Americans. Everyone was making a lot of noise so the staff made everyone leave. We all decided to go on a 'pub crawl'. We pretty much went to one bar and thats it. Our trip twins were there too. After that one bar we went back to the hostel and hung out for a while and that made for one of the funniest nights on our trip for sure..
