Cubans are expecting the 81st birthday celebration tomorrow for President Fidel Castro as he continues to recover from an operation a year ago, but a visit by friend Hugo Chavez could be in the cards.
The Venezuelan president said a week ago that he would 'soon' visit his friend and ally.
Mr Chavez was at Mr Castro's bedside when he turned 80 last year and provisionally ceded power to his brother, Raul, four days after undergoing intestinal surgery.
Mr Chavez' possible visit could be the highlight of the birthday celebrations. No official celebrations have been planned, and only a few social and political groups have announced festivities.
