Pilgrims beflagged, bedaypacked and dressed in all the colours of the rainbow, volunteers in purple and blue or red and yellow, and the sign on a workmate's desk. It was surprisingly quiet in my part of town yesterday. The workers seem to have disappeared, leaving the place to the pilgrims. This is terrific for the WYD merchandising tent which is going great guns but not so good for the small businesses such as coffee shops who are missing many of their regular customers and not seeing any trade from the pilgrims. Going to be interesting to see how the road blocks affect us.
