Some observations from travels

Travel Theme: Walls

This week’s Travel Theme is walls.  Walls can be interpreted in different ways.  Literally it is a masonry fence; something that encloses a space; or an architectural partition.  It can also mean a mental wall that we build around us as borders to the outside world.  For this challenge I will share some walls used to depict history.
