Subject: Travel pool report #7 -- cathedral
The president and first family arrived at the cathedral to large crowds on either side of the square, waiting patiently in the heavy rain. They began cheering as he arrived. He paused to shake some hands on his way toward the door, carrying his own umbrella. The First Lady walked a step behind, holding the arm of her mother and an umbrella over them both.
The president waved to the crowd several times as he made his way into the white stone cathedral. He's meeting here with Cardinal Jaime Ortega (a previous pool report had made this Jamie via an inadvertent iPhone autocorrect: his first name is Jaime).
