A mural depicting Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez and the words in Spanish "Healing" covers a wall along a downtown street in Caracas, Venezuela, Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2013. Chavez's sudden return to Venezuela after more than two months of cancer treatments in Cuba has fanned speculation that the president could be preparing to relinquish power and make way for a successor and a new election. Chavez remained silent and out of sight after his return was announced on his Twitter account Monday. The government said he was continuing unspecified medical treatments at Caracas' military hospital. (AP Photo/Ariana Cubillos)
