THE Pope visited the United States (美國) last week. There were of course many different activities and souvenirs to welcome him. One of them was a model of the Vatican (梵蒂岡) made with Lego (樂高) bricks!
Pope Francis (方濟各) visited Washington, DC (首都華盛頓), New York (紐約) and Philadelphia (費城).
A Catholic priest called Bob Simon who lived near Philadelphia has always been a Lego fan all through his life. He spent about 10 months to assemble St Peter’s Basilica (聖伯多祿大殿) with about half a million Lego!
It was an exhibit at the Frankin Institute in Philadelphia when the Pope visited the state.
