Weekly Photo Challenge: Walls of War


The weekly photo challenge is wall. Nicaragua abounds with walls of war, remembrances of their defense of personal rights, freedom, and dignity. Honoring their Nicaraguan heroes is especially clear on the walls in the cities.

    • We went to the civil war museum, too. I think we visited every museum in Leon. It’s a fantastic city. The Clint Van Winkle quote is for the 47 U.S. Senators. I sneaked it in there. lol Because of your posts of Curacao, we are planning an October trip. I am so excited. Airfare is very reasonable to Curacao and we’ll be there in the low season. Thanks for all the wonderful information.🙂
