A visit from the Pope

Astrid was born on the day the German Pope Benedict XVI was elected Pope, so it seems only fitting that the Pope visits Munich when we're in town. The Pope is from Bavaria, Germany, and is the 265th and reigning Pope of the Roman Catholic Church. He will be giving a speech in the plaza later on today. There are TV cameras from all angles around a flower covered podium in front of a church, and large screens so that the people can watch from afar. Crowds of people are standing around waiting for the Pope to appear.
