The Queue...

Amazing pictures from Italian paper La Repubblica of the queue to pay respect to the late Pope. The queue is said to be up to 15 hours! If we take the 18,000 per hour figure as accurate that would imply that over quarter of a milliopn people are standing in line. It has been announced that from tonight no one will be allowed join the queue. Romans are even being asked to open their houses and shops to accomodate pilgrims.
