But as we kept walking through the park, we came to the sunken garden, which was beautiful.

We also wanted to see Speaker's Corner. It was raining a little, but there were at least 3 guys up on boxes declaiming. I wonder if there are ever female speakers? They were mostly religious in nature, although one started speaking about how you could go online and find out how to make your own drones. We weren't sure what his point was. There were also a number of small groups standing around arguing, so apparently, you can just go to Speakers Corner to argue quietly if you don't feel like standing on a box.

Next we walked over to Buckingham Palace.
It was a day full of walking!
Did I mention that it's been extra hot in London while we've been here? It has been in the 80s, sunny and humid. We really didn't pack for this - we packed all pants, no shorts. I even packed some long sleeve shirts and 2 jackets! There are no window screens anywhere, not sure about why. And very few places have air conditioning, although our train into town yesterday was very cool. The Underground in particular is quite steamy.
