The Pope Comes to Philly, Day One

With the Pope on his way to town, the city is a weird place to be today. We biked around the secured areas and found things to be surprisingly quiet.

We'd bet it won't be so quiet tomorrow.

We tried to cross the Parkway here but they didn't let us through

Seriously, don't jump over the fence
