— NPR's Tom Gjelten reports from Cama Juani, Cuba, about 20 miles from Santa Clara, where Pope John Paul gives the first mass of his Cuban visit today. 525 residents of Cama Juani got spaces on the government buses that will take them to today's open air mass. Some of them are practicing Catholics; others are curiosity seekers who want to be there for the historic event.
