President Hugo Chávez's return to Venezuela after more than two months in Cuba has been taken by many of his followers as evidence of his recovery from the toughest stage of his illness; hence, the festive mood near Bolívar Square, the meeting point of most of them.

Before 7 a.m. in the morning, people started to rally on the "hot corner," downtown Caracas. By 11 a.m. approximately 300 people were present, all of them singing mottos in favor of the president and thanking Cuba for having taken care of him.

Many people would go to Bolívar Square by midday wearing t-shirts which read "I am Chávez." However, they were not spontaneous attendees, but public servants emboldened to appear in the scene.

About four blocks from Bolívar Square, loud speakers were placed to play songs extolling the president.

At several Bolívar Squares across the nation rallies were being held to welcome Chávez. The events were convened by Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
