Nobody has been received by Filipinos as big as this in decades. The humongous crowd; horde of law enforcers; helicopters flying low and the electrifying air. This afternoon commences the euphoric days ahead of us with the arrival here in Malate of His Holiness Pope Francis. Scheduled to be housed at the Papal Nunciature, a stone-throw away from where I roost actually. Welcome to the neighborhood Papa Francisco!
