Workout for the Day

So I had heard that when you’re trying to see the Pope, you should watch out for the nuns because they push and shove more than the general public…

Well, we didn’t have to fight any nuns (actually we interviewed a few of them and cheered “VIVA EL PAPA” with them) but Zach, Andy and I did have an interesting time trying to get to the security of CUA.

Originally, there were seven of us students together for the CUA/National Shrine event yesterday.  I had the camera and we interviewed a man on the metro and tried to find the entrance of CUA.  Zach was my main reporter and carried all my gear so we decided to stop and talk to some volunteers for the event.  Unfortunately, the rest of our group was too anxious and went ahead.  We couldn’t find them for at least another 30 minutes.  We had a front spot in the line, but we were told to leave by the rest of our group, but when we found them they said that according to the Secret Service, we should have stayed in line…So we went back.

Somehow we lost people again and it ended up Zach, Andy and I in the line.  The second they got us into a line and opened the gate, people started running.  So we did too.  We kind of have a Cloverfield-style coverage of the three of us literally in a full sprint through the campus to the security line, passing women and small children on the way.

It definitely made my day.  Gave me my workout.  That camera was pretty heavy.
