Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez waves as his daughter Rosa Virginia stands next to him before his departure to Cuba from Simon Bolivar international airport in Maiquetia on the outskirts of Caracas, Venezuela, Saturday July 16, 2011. Chavez left home Saturday for Cuba to begin chemotherapy, vowing to win his fight against cancer and calling for his political allies to stay united in his absence. Earlier in the day, Chavez announced he was delegating some of his duties to his vice president and finance minister as he prepared to fly to Cuba. (AP Photo/Ariana Cubillos) less
