Nickel / Regina Coyula

So tell me that truth isn’t stranger than fiction. In Moa, the city of nickel, in Holguin province, the workers at one of the plants, faced with the impossibility of meeting an agreed delivery to China and the prospect of losing their pay in foreign currency, decided to send the agreed-upon number of tons… making up the weight with dirt and the dregs from the nickel processing. The Chinese were not very pleased.
