The pope has arrived!

This morning Pope Benedict XVI set foot in Australia for the first time. This is only the fifth time a Pope has visited Australia. He now begins a three day "rest" period, during which time his location is still unknown.
For those who cannot attend wyd, SBS will be providing live coverage of all the major wyd events including the opening Mass and catechesis highlights, and of course EWTN will provide extensive programming.
Travel update: I've reached Mt. Schoenstatt now, and will be moving into Sydney itself tomorrow. Some of the nuns we are staying with went to see the Pope landing, and managed to catch sight of him as he drove away. I still haven't seen the Pope, but hopefully will get a good view during wyd itself.

I'd love to hear from you, whether you're attending WYD, or simply journeying spiritually with the pilgrims! I might not be able to reply to comments, but will certainly read them all.
