Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Friday that Fidel Castro seemed in "very, very good" shape when they met in Cuba last week and he claimed that the ailing revolutionary had even walked in the streets of Havana. Chavez, a close friend of Castro, said the health of the 82-year-old former Cuban leader was "much better than all the times I've visited him in the past three years, two and a half years." Castro has not been seen in public since mid-2006 when he underwent intestinal surgery and ceded power to his younger brother Raul.
