Adventure in Seeing the Pope

As you can imagine Copacabana Beach was as ea of people from all over the world. Of course Brazil is very well represented. We had to buy additional railtickets which allowed travel between 2 and 3 as a way to manage the volume of pilgrims.

Our group were well place along the roads, on shoulders and up trees. The end result being everyone one way or another saw the Pope. With the volume of people getting home was a challenge as stations were opening and closing according to volume of traffic using a particular station. But constant text updates helped us keep track of each other and know which stations were open.
