During the last week of September Pope Benedict XVI. will visit the Czech Republic. Thousands of people from the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Austria are expected to come to Brno International Airport in the vicinity of which the mass will be celebrated.
How do they get there? By cars and buses.
Where do you park them?
On a freeway that runs by the airport.
It will be closed COMPLETELY between two exits and used as a huge parking lot. The usual traffic will have to go through Brno. Yep, transit traffic will be sent to two boroughs of the city. The main street that is to be used for the detour is really bad already in terms of traffic and now the police will reroute some more.
The best thing one can do is leave on Friday and come back on Monday… Something tells me I should be tolerant and avoid saying things like “why do I have to be bothered by a visit of a church leader whom I do not care for at all”. So I will… I will make sure to avoid all the insanity (traffic jams, crowds…) and I’ll be fine…
