After Mass this morning, we walked, packed and packed, to the Cuatro Vientos military airfield. This was a walk of over 12 kilometers. We paused in between and drank and sweated a lot. It was about 45ºC around that time. I finished about 5 liters of drinks, and hardly had to pee.
After walking for about 7 hours, we arrived at Cuatro Vientos at ten to seven. After we tapped into our picnic pack, the vigil began with worship and the Pope's speech. During the speech, severe weather broke out which lasted briefly and briefly, but long enough to get everything wet.
