Papa Francisco

The white smoke rises up from the conclave in Vatican City, the flags drape down from the balconies in Recoleta. Nationalistic, sky blue and white, Vaticanal virginal
white and yellow. Catholics have their first Latino Pope, Papa Francisco, and for Porteños he’s one of theirs. But has he cancelled the Sunday papers? Does he drink yerba maté?
