A Sunday in London: Oxford Street and Speaker's Corner

On Sunday, Naomi took me out to explore other areas of London. We headed first to Oxford Street to check out the shops…

Then, after lunch we headed to Hyde Park which is sort of the liberal-hub / protest site in London. On Sundays the park holds Speaker’s Corner, where Londoners gather to openly debate any issue they want (most common issues are religion and politics). People brings stools to stand on and then start debating. I love the idea of Speaker’s Corner, a place where people can go to talk openly and freely about problems without the threat of violence.

After listening to the different speakers we hung out in the park.

After wandering the park, we headed home but first, we stopped at Harrods!

This cool window display was made entirely of pencils!

Of course, our trip was not complete without a picture on the Tube:
