6. Wonderful artwork & memorials to those who died fighting for freedom...

I'd looked at some of this before and that one street that is literally lined with the faces of the dead is absolutely haunting. I heard last week that the government was trying to clean all of those walls off, so now people are standing guard to stop that.

Thanks for sharing!
