So this is what happens when important people like the Pope come to Washington and head for the White House. He was staying in an embassy on Massachusetts Avenue that we stumbled upon while leaving Washington the next day. But this time we were stumbling all over the Mall looking at monuments. When the police started closing down the streets and yelling at innocents who just wanted to cross the street we decided to stick around and see what was going to happen. I wanted to look closer at what was captured on my camera to see if we could see a face etc but I will have to wait until my tech savvy people come home for that to happen. A few minutes after witnessing this parade we were crossing the lawn west of the Washington monument and heard a woman singing the Lord's Prayer over a loud speaker. We looked north and there was the White House with a lot of people outside on the back lawn and a big projection screen with video on it. That night on the news we saw it from the White House side of things with the President and the Pope sitting on chairs in front of the gathering. I felt just like Forrest Gump.
