Vatican Square & The Pope!

So after we finished at the Vatican Museum, Melinda, Gina, and I were trying to find the entrance to St. Peter’s Basilica (which apparently is separate from the Museum) when we walked into Vatican Square and saw thousands of people standing there looking up. We didn’t know what was going on, so we turned around and all of sudden there was the Pope in his little window. It was noon on Sunday and the Pope comes out to give a welcome address to the people. Not only did he give it Italian and English, but this approximately 2-minute speech he gave in 6 languages! There was Italian, English, Spanish, French, German, and some type of Eastern European language that I wasn’t familiar with. It was really cool that we randomly got to see the Pope that day. I was finally able to get a good picture of him, but it was tough because of how far up he was.
