The Ceiling of Jose Marti International Airport / Regina Coyula

The Ceiling of Jose Marti International Airport / Regina Coyula
Regina Coyula, Translator: Unstated

Foto de internetMoved to curiosity on hearing, by different routes, the
news that the ceiling of the airport failed due to the weight of the
empty suitcases hidden in it, I wanted to know the real truth, which is,
as we all know, an approximation.

About four years ago in Terminal 3 (International Flights), a false
ceiling gave way under the weight of empty suitcases, hidden there after
having been stolen.

In February of this year, Terminal 2 (U.S. Flights) recently remodeled,
saw its roof turned into a swimming pool during a downpour. The roof
didn't collapse, but the water ran over the eaves and fell in a
waterfall over the administrative area, pooling in the false ceiling
which had to be taken apart and emptied piece by piece. The drainage off
the roof was thick with debris and a mix of soft drink cans tossed there
through the negligence of the workers during the repair.

It seems that both news items joined together to give form to the rumor
now circulating.

Theft, negligence, common themes. How many examples can be found simply
by looking up.

Cuba, International Airport, corruption.
