Er, should I say POped. After months in Italia, our extended stay has come to an end with a crowning of sorts – the 1.5 Billion Catholics around the world seemed to surround us as we attended (in the rain no less) the Vatican’s Pope Show, waiting intently for that wisp of white smoke – siganlling the Cardinals have successfully elected the next Pope.
He is (Hmmm… no women, eh?) Bueno Aires Bishop, Jorge Bergoglio (see our Twitter feed) and he has teken the names Pope Francis the 1st after St. Francis of Assissi. I see the people sround us going apeshit and one almost made me drop this phone. Gotta get the hell out of here and back to the vino to celebrate – wish me luck making it to the other side of the square 🙂
See you back on the air on April 1st. Can’t wait – it’s time to speak fucking ENGLISH once more !!
