"Not the time for interviews"...

...Pope Benedict tells journalists as he goes back to the Latium and to a month of semi-vacation at Castel Gandolfo. (Apcom dispatch)

Benedict XVI left the village of Lorenzago di Cadore (Belluno), where he spent his vacation since July 9, right before 1645 [1445 GMT]. "Arrivederci," he said to the representatives of the local community who went to the castle of Mirabello to greet him. The Pope, however, did not want to answer the questions of journalists on the workload which he must face in his return to work. "This is not a moment for interviews, but only for a greeting," he told the reporters.
