At Meeting in Havana, Evo Morales Finds Fidel “as Lucid as Ever”

HAVANA – Bolivian President Evo Morales met in Havana with Cuban leader Fidel Castro, whom he found “as lucid as ever” two days after his 90th birthday, the Bolivian chief executive said on his official Twitter account, on which he also posted photos of the meeting.

“At 90 years and two days, Fidel as lucid as ever. His concern and reflection: food for life on the planet,” Morales tweeted Monday night, after arriving that afternoon to join in the celebration of Castro’s nine decades.

The pictures show the former Cuban president at home wearing his usual sweatsuit, conversing with Morales and following the fortunes of Cuban wrestler Mijain Lopez, who won in Rio de Janeiro this Monday his third consecutive Olympic title.

“At the time of the visit, Cuban Mijain Lopez won the gold medal for Greco-Roman wrestling. We celebrated together with Fidel,” Morales posted.

Another shot shows Fidel Castro with several packs of Andean quinoa and Bolivian coffee that were gifts from Morales.

Fidel Castro turned 90 on Aug. 13 amid an intense program of tributes in his honor on the Caribbean island.

On that occasion, the Bolivian president also used Twitter to congratulate Castro “with all my heart,” and praised his “enviable and inimitable life.”

The last official visit of Morales to Cuba was in May, when he met with Fidel and his brother Raul Castro, the country’s current president, who decorated him with the Order of Jose Marti, the highest honor bestowed by the Cuban government.

After his stay in Havana, Evo Morales will travel to the Dominican Republic, where he will attend the swearing-in of President Danilo Medina for his second term in office.
