I spent a week Moa, Cuba to give some software training at a nickel mine there. This mine was nationalized after the revolution in 1959 and essentially taken from the American owner. Now it's a joint venture between the Cuban government and a Canadian mining company (Sherritt).
This was my second trip there and the gang at the mine took me to Baracoa where Christopher Columbus first landed in Cuba. Baracoa is in Guantánamo province where the American military base is. ♦
