Quote: Some of my experiences in London, while doing a term abroad at the London School of Economics. I had classes only on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the rest of my time I was seeing the sights and traveling.

Speakers' Corner

Attraction | "Speaker's Corner"

I had heard about the wild "characters" that congregate on Sunday to speak their mind. I was not disappointed by what I heard. Aside from the usual bashing of the U.S. and the President, I also bore witness to "Christian atheism," and cries to bring down McDonald's. A good number of these speakers are there from week to week, probably just to get some attention. However, there were at least an equal number of people there for serious discussions—although it seemed most of those in attendance were tourists getting a laugh. It is definitely worth a stop.
