Bolivia's New Leader, Cosies up to Castro

Before even being inaugurated, Bolivia's president-elect, Evo Morales of the Movemement Towards Socialism, paid a flying visit, just before new year, to Fidel Castro in Cuba.

During the visit, Castro and Morales announced a 30-month plan to eliminate illiteracy in Bolivia, provide free eye operations to up to 50,000 Bolivians and provide 5,000 medical scholarships for Bolivians to study in Cuba.

Morales said that his meetings with Castro have been "an encounter of two generations in the struggle for dignity ... of two revolutions."
