I Wonder Who It Was?
30D Blogging Challenge

The Pope will be making a trip to the US very soon, and some citizens will be displaced due to his travel safety regimen. Has anything like this happened to you before, being stuck in traffic so a famous person could get by?


Not waiting in traffic but it does remind me of an incident in Washington, DC on my honeymoon. My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Washington, DC from June 28th to July 5th 2008. We flew down from Rochester so we traveled through the city either on the Metro or on foot. One of the days we decided to walk from the National Mall, past the Capitol and on to the White House. We had passed the White House and were returning to the Mall when a few DC police were located at an intersection, ready to block traffic. Papa Panda was a bit ahead of me when the one police officer turned to me (obviously a tourist) and said "I can't say who is going to be passing by but you might want to stick around". I hollered to my husband to come back and we stood on that corner for a bit. The officer closed the road to traffic and a motorcade came down the street and pulled into the driveway of the White House! I have no idea who was in the black government SUV but it was somebody important, it could have been THE MOST POWERFUL person... I can only imagine!
