We want to be first in line for WYD 2050

This is an odd story:
280 pilgrims from last year’s World Youth Day are still illegally in Australia, The Daily Telegraph reported, but the number represents less than 0.3 percent of the number who had arrived for the event.
The newspaper said that of 110,000 people who came to Sydney for World Youth Day last year, 550 did not go home. Federal immigration authorities have caught and expelled about half of those but 280 pilgrims are still on the run, it added.
I really enjoyed Denver when I went for WYD 1993, and I’d love to return, but I don’t think I would have thought to not go home after it was over. Maybe these people really liked the kangaroos…
