Day Fifty-Five

Notes: You may recognize that face on the wall.  That is John Lennon, and this is the Lennon Wall in Prague, Czech Republic.  It has existed since the 1980's, when the grievances, poetry and art were drawn on the wall as a form of passive resistance against the communist regime.  The owners of the wall allow the grafitti, and people continually add to it.  This particular Lennon portrait has since been covered by many layers of paint.
