St. Peter's, Rome

St. Peters Church in Rome is the big church attached to the Vatican. The pope gives addresses to thousands of admiring and/or religious people everyday in the courtyard. I never saw the pope but many people I talked to did.
The church is huge and very impressive but I only got to see the crypt where all the former pope's are buried. While I was being pushed through the crypt a little boy thought it would be wise to stick his finger in a hole in the wall. Well, he couldn't get it out and it caused all sorts of commotion.

The area around John Paul's tomb was crazy; there were tons of people weeping, praying and kneeling.
