Pope Benedict XVI in a Sombrero in Mexico

On March 25, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI rode his “popemobile” to lead an open mass at the Parque del Bicentenario in Silao, Mexico, where he was gifted with an enormous black-and-silver sombrero. His right-hand man, Archbishop Georg Gänswein, helped place the sombrero atop the pope's head as he waved to a smitten public.
