RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Bolivia’s former president Evo Morales had a dramatic homecoming on Monday, November 9th, greeted by crowds of cheering supporters as he crossed the border from Argentina where he had been living in exile since late last year.
Morales, seen off by Argentine President Alberto Fernandez, who hugged him goodbye, made his return after his socialist MAS party swept back into power a year after he resigned and fled the country. At the border town of Villazon, thousands of flag-waving supporters chanting ‘Evo’ welcomed Morales home.
