Fathers Day in London

Today was quite the entertaining day for us students. We started our day with a tour of the lavish Royal Albert Hall where many artists have performed. Many performers have been through there throughout the years, such as The Beatles, Cirque Du Soleil and the world’s best orchestras. Then we walked through Hyde Park to Speaker’s Corner where many people of all nationalities publicly voiced their opinions about just about all you could think of. Some could be called radicals others revolutionary. One speaker in particular articulated that we, regardless of religion or nationality, are all the same. We then had a lovely picnic in the very same park. Soon after we went to Covent Garden where many Buskers (street performers), toy stores and vendors operated. There we had free time to explore the area and see all that appeared in this area of London. After we left that area we went to No. 10 Downing St. where the Prime Minister lives. Continuing that path led us to Westminster Abbey where a beautiful ceremony was held. Later we had fish and chips (chicken as well) to end this wonderful day. Happy Father’s Day to all!
