Pope Rover

I just got back from a three week trip in Europe and had a great time. Rovers all over the place. While in Rome I went to the Vatican. During a visit to St. Peter's Basilica I noticed a white Defender sitting at the front entrance of the church. It wasn't five minutes later that the Pope came out and got in the back of the Rover and did a couple circles around the sqare. I was in shock, not only did I see the Pope close up, but he was sporting a Rover. I have a couple pictures of him in the back and when I get home tonight I will post them for everyone to see.

All the best,
Mike
