Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Sunday his ally, Cuban leader Fidel Castro, was recovering quickly after intestinal surgery that forced him to turn power over to his brother a month ago. "Fidel is recovering well. The rapidity of his recovery surprised me," said Chavez, who capped off a foreign tour of four countries on Thursday by making his third visit to the communist-led island in three weeks. "He's sits up, writes, has a telephone and gives orders, instructions," added Chavez, speaking during his weekly television and radio program "Hello President."
