This was one of the pushiest crowds I've ever experienced. People were waiting for the pope to drive by in his cute little popemobile. I couldn't for the life of my squeeze to the front. I guess my heart wasn't in it.
These women know how to work it. Religious fanatics make awesome consumer whores. The Pope's visit brought about 30 million euros (fact from the two hooligans in the first picture) into an already tourist over-exploited city.
