Papal audiences in Rome... Please note if you are attending

I had been to a Papal audience when Benedict was Pope. If you arrived at 9:00 am, you could still get a seat.

I went to the Papal audience this morning. Pope Frances is obviously more popular. Seats were all gone by 7am. :(

After that, it didnt matter if you had a ticket- everyone was let in. It was a madhouse.

If you're planning on going, DO give yourself plenty of time.

And while I am at it...

If you are going to be amongst 50,000 other people, in close quarters, please follow these common courtesies to your fellow human beings:

1- Please leave your cigarettes at home! Some people have health issues and it's not like they can move away from your smoke!

2- Please leave your cologne and perfume on the dresser. (See item #1 above.)

3- Do please where deodorant.

4- Please show the Pope that you haven't forgotten your manners; "excuse me" and " I'm sorry" go a long way (especially after you've stepped on me five times).

5- If you are sick and/or hacking up a lung--- PLEASE STAY HOME!!!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT. :)
