Pope Benedict XVI in Poland

This time I would like to send to you some photos from first foreign travel of Pope Benedict XVI which brought this noble guest from Roma to Poland:)
Benedict came yesterday in the afternoon. Today most people in Poland had a free day to go and welcome him. He arrived at Warsaw. Today in the morning he has celebrated a mass there and has flown into Crakow after visiting Czestochowa. Tomorrow he will celebrate another mass in Crakow. In the meantime he will visit nearby Wadowice (place of birth of John Paul II) and concetration camp of Auschwitz. The last visit will be very meaningful. German Pope in Auschwitz. And here you have some pictures from this important visit:)

Three pictures below were taken in Czestochowa where Pope Benedict XVI has spent some hours today afternoon. About half million of people welcomed him there.

And last pictures for today - they were taken in Auschitz. Pope Benedict will visit Auschwitz soon during his visit. I hope you know how cruel place Auschwitz was and how symbolic for every human being it will always be.

Ok. That's all for today. Both pictures from India and comments about futher life of Anne of Green Gables have to wait.
What I would like to tell to you also is that lately I have been watching Eisenstein's movie about Ivan the Terrible and I am still moved by this story. Really.
Will Benedict XVI go to Moscow? I think very little probable thing.
Read me soon:)
