Ollanta goes to Cuba

We've just heard that Peru President Ollanta Humala has asked the country's Congress to fly to Cuba on January 11th and 12th (by Peruvian law he has to ask permission to leave the country). By my count that's now Mujica of Uruguay, CFK of Argentina and Morales of Bolivia and now Humala all converging on that neck of the woods at the same time.

Now, what on earth might there be in Cuba these days to attract so many LatAm heads of state? Beats me...

Update: The trip is confirmed and Congress said "yeah dude, you can go." The reason given for the visit is "with the objective of making a business visit". So now you know.
