That said - I am sure any mass lead by Pope Francis will be more interesting but since darn near everyone is streaming into the city to visit the Pope, we are going west. I have no desire to be trapped in my home or neighborhood by the traffic jams created by security teams that never studied the traffic patterns of the Philadelphia area. It is my honest assessment that the main arteries in eastern Montgomery, Delaware and southern Bucks counties are going to become parking lots. Gah!
Welcome to our crazy city Pope Francis! I hope you have an enjoyable time and that someone gets you a good soft pretzel and a cheese steak while you are here!
