“@yardleyjb, the Rome bureau chief for @nytimes, is traveling with #Pope Francis as he visits Paraguay, Ecuador and Bolivia this month. On Tuesday, @yardleyjb photographed the pope in his #popemobile at an enormous outdoor mass in #Quito, the capital of Ecuador. Some members of the crowd had camped outside overnight in anticipation of the #mass, despite cold and rain on Monday. Today the pope flies to La Paz, in Bolivia, where he will spend just four hours before heading to the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz. Francis has asked that coca leaves be available to him in La Paz, perhaps as a gesture of solidarity with the native people. We’ll see if he actually chews one. Follow @yardleyjb to see more photos as he continues his travels with #PopeFrancis.” By nytimes on Instagram.
