Leaving love notes to my husband at the John Lennon Wall in Prague
The Lennon Wall in Prague is a massive mural located in Prague’s Lesser Quarter close to the Charles Bridge. During the communist era in the 1980s, the Lennon Wall served as a place for political propaganda as the original painting to be applied to the wall was of John Lennon after his death along with lyrics from the Beatles’ songs. Western pop music was banned in Prague and though police continued to cover up the painting, those who longed for political change in Prague continued to paint the wall to get their message out.
Today, the Lennon Wall is constantly changing as artists and visitors to the wall add their special touch. Images and words promoting peace and harmony decorate the wall in a fluid and colorful manner.
As I had left my husband behind in California for six weeks while I traveled around Europe, I decided the Lennon Wall was a good place to show my husband I hadn’t forgotten about him.
Peace, love, harmony, and the Beatles forever!
