The motocycle cortege coming down Lenin Prospect

Russian friends keep tipping us off to cool stuff about Fidel.  This is the best footage we've seen.

The film is called: 'Our Guest Fidel'

Good footage of his motorcade coming down Lenin Prospect from Vnukovo airport with him, Brezhnev, and other politburo members standing up in an open limousine on a sunny summer day while crowds line the avenue cheering and waving flags.

"Like a giant human corridor, 10s of thousands of Muscovites came out to welcome the leader of the Cuban revolution.  Workers fervently greeted their guests."
