Pope and Circumstance

The Pope is in town today. Already the streets are packed. Just going out for coffee in my neighborhood was an ordeal this morning. It seems that this is a very big deal. I read today that there hasn't been a visit by a Pope to the UK since 1982 - which, to be fair, is understandable. When I think Catholic, I don't think British. But since he hasn't been in almost two decades and he is coming during my first week here, I'm going out Pope hunting. There is a big parade down Princes Street this evening, so I'll wander over there and see if I can spot him in his Popemobile, which would be almost as cool seeing as the Pope himself.
