Leave a comment

Pope Francis begun his tour of the United States of America Tuesday.

He is expected during his stay to greet millions of American Catholics and address difficult issues like climate change and income inequality.

President Barack Obama was at the Airforce base to welcome the Pope as he landed – a situation which almost never occurs.

The Pontiff will visit Washington DC, New York and Philadelphia.

But one of the interesting things about the Pope as he landed in the US is the car he chose to be driven in.

While, Obama drove off in his million dollar armoured car ‘The Beast’, the Pope chose a modest FIAT 500 which costs $19,685.
