Massive Crowds greet Pope Francis as he goes through Rio's streets in modest car

(-ONLY VIDEO-) About 30 minutes after landing in Rio, Pope Francis made his way through the streets of Rio, in a modest grey colored vehicle. ;

The combination of heavy street traffic and thousands of enthusiastic pilgrims forced the Pope's driver to stop the car on different occasions. ;

The Pope rode on the back of the car, greeting pilgrims along the way. Upon his arrival to Rio de Janeiro's Cathedral, the Pope hopped on his open air popemobile, as thousands of young people cheered him on from the city streets. ;
