Pope in the UK this week

The media good/bad will be going in a frenzy this week when the pope pays a visit to the UK, I've not paid much attention to coverage so far on the upcoming visit, doesn't interest me that much.

But it does remind me of what little memory I have from 28 years ago when I went in 1982 aged 7 to see the pope in Manchester. The night before we got to Heaton Park and bagged our spot for the night, I was awake most of the night balling my eyes out at the cramp pains in my legs to which the St Johns Ambulance did their level best to have me forget the pain. The next day I don't remember much, it was crowded, couldn't see/hear much, what I did see was very distant, pope mobile in the distance.
