Today was a light day early since we know we will have a late night. Since Jeanne again had to work my touring partner Kerri and I decided to go to the Museum of Communism.

The museum itself is diffferent, it starts you off with wall signs that tell the story of the Czech Republic from Tomas Masyrak leading a free people after WW1 to the communist takeover after ...
