Venezuela looks to Lenin’s embalming experts for Chavez’s body

Published on 12 March 2013, by M. Tomazy.

"It’s a process described as “not a pretty sight” that involves the extraction of all the blood from a corpse. But if Venezuela needs help embalming Hugo Chavez then Russia has expertise stretching back to Soviet revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin.
Authorities in Caracas announced last week that Chavez’s body will be embalmed “like Lenin” whose mummified relics have been on public display in the Moscow Red Square mausoleum since the Bolshevik Revolution leader's death in 1924"
Comment:My personal opinion is that embalming is a silly idea because I am against lending a holy aura to the persons even when they are leaders or whatsoever..Good ideas survive whereas good persons die.
