If anything marks a sign of normalized relations between the United States and Cuba, it’s President Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro doing the wave together at a baseball game.
Well, perhaps it’s not that serious. But it’s still funny and endearing.
USA Today reports that the incident happened in Havana during an exhibition game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban national team.
It came as a part of Obama’s three-day trip to Cuba, marking the first by a sitting U.S. president in 88 years.
Looks like Castro realized what was happening just a tad bit late, but he eventually caught on and joined the president and first lady (watch a couple different angle below).
Just prior to the game, Obama and Castro observed a moment of silence with the rest of the crowd, honoring the victims of Tuesday’s terrorist attacks in Brussels.
