When Pope Francis Came to East Harlem…


Pope Francis took time of his hectic agenda to visit the children of East Harlem. My people (i.e. The Latinos and the Harlemites) wasted no time in peddling all kinds of Pope and Vatican-themed merchandise, from flags and buttons to t-shirts and bananas.

I wish I had more time to document this historic day, but I was in a rush, riding a tiny bike and almost got killed by a Latino Pope enthusiast.
