THE AIR THAT THEY BREATHE

By Scabaida
One of my trips past "El Puente", Cadiz, Spain. Believe it or not there is a town by this refinery. Story has it that people in the area accepted a substantial amount of money in turn of voting for it to be constructed in the area. Nowadays it has become a source of concern for the whole of the Campo area with people claiming serious illnesses as a consequence of it.

People will always pay for their greed in the end. As a combined story & photo it makes a good piece of PJ, Mabelle.
