The Lennon Wall, Prague

We didn’t set out to visit the Lennon wall. We just sort of found it while we were exploring that part of the city. It was our third and last day in Prague. Our son wanted to spend some time in Lesser Town (or the Small Quarter) beneath Prague Castle to simply take in the […]
