Physicians of May 1st

IMG_3018At the ‘Plaza de la Revolución’ (Revolution Square) where the May 1st march ended. These physicians were lined up in case of emergencies; the physician on the far right saw me taking the photo and showed off a nice smile. The march was a very passionate one, there was dancing, singing and all sorts of chanting.  In the past Fidel Castro would say a speech every May 1st at this same location, unfortunately due to his advanced age he was unable to attend. Raul Castro was present and stood below Jose Marti’s monument, he did not say a speech but he looked very pleased as he waved at all the marchers. Lots of love was shown for Hugo Chávez who recently passed away on March 5th, 2013.
