Supermodel Naomi Campbell visits housing project built by Venezuela for Cuban refinery workers

Supermodel Naomi Campbell, who recently conducted a lengthy magazine interview with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, on Friday visited a new housing project his country built for Cuban oil refinery workers.
Cuban news agency Prensa Latina said the British-born model chatted with a young married couple who will live in one of 100 small, white cookie-cutter houses recently built near the Camilo Cienfuegos refinery. The refinery was renovated with Venezuelan assistance.
Accompanied by Cuban Vice Foreign Minister Alejandro Gonzalez, Campbell posed with the couple after congratulating them on their new home.
It was unclear what Campbell was doing in Cuba, but she visited Venezuela in October for an interview with Chavez for an unspecified publication. During that visit she also joined Chavez at a political rally and toured government-funded housing projects.
On Friday, Chavez was nearby in Cuba meeting with regional leaders at the Petrocaribe petroleum trade pact.
