Farewell to Sydney

I don't think he's actually returning to Kansas City by boat, but this photo sent by KCSJ pilgrim Chris Goedken is an appropriate "farewell to Sydney" shot.


Chris writes:

"We have just completed the whole World Youth Day week . . . I got to see the Pope which was an amazing feeling. My favorite part of the week has probably been just seeing all of the pilgrims, meeting, and trading with them and hanging out with my own group. I feel like I have been absolutely blessed on this pilgrimage. The hospitality of our host families has been unbelievable. Everyone has been so kind and generous to us. This is one of the most beautiful places that I've ever been. This trip has lived up to my expectations and more."
