The comandante in sneakers paid a personal visit to the construction site at the American mission in Havana. What's being built, its a "surprise," he said. Too bad that the bulldozer operator did not dump a load of dirt on top of the man in the olive green garb.

HAVANA (AP) - Fidel Castro visited a mysterious new construction site outside the U.S. Interests Section on Wednesday night, but kept mum over what was being built in front of the mission - a growing flashpoint for U.S.-Cuba relations.
Dressed in his olive green uniform and surrounded by security men, Castro made the nighttime visit one day after directing a massive march past the building to protest recent U.S. actions aimed at Cuba, including a new electronic sign streaming news and human rights messages.
"If I tell you, it will ruin the surprise," Castro told reporters who asked what workers were building. The Cuban president said he was there primarily "to greet the workers."
