Popemobile around the world (photos)
The "Popemobile" has been around the world...including a stop in Washington, D.C. There are actually a variety of papal vehicles. Some are bulletproof, some allow the Pope to stand, but all "Popemobiles" are designed to keep His Holiness safe while greeting the thousands of Catholics who turn out to see him all over the world.
Pope Benedict XVI waves to pilgrims as he passes the Sydney Opera House in his Pope mobile after addressing thousands of pilgrims at Barangaroo on his first day of official duties during World Youth Day activities in Sydney, Australia, Thursday, July 17, 2008.
