Now this is a weird mystery that blows my mind. And has for years. This is a lid on one of the manholes in the Novosibirsk State University campus. One of many, nothing special about it. However, something tells me that it originated elsewhere… wild guess – Spain?
I think you’d agree that a chunk of iron this size isn’t exactly a portable gadget. And Russia isn’t really an iron-importing country. Especially when it comes to lugging a spanish sewer lid for 6 000 km just to cover a manhole in Siberia.
Who? How? When? What for? %@!!&#%%%#()&$ !!!
P.S. insomniacal brainstorming –> a "fresh" look at the problem –> a "smart" explanation – Russia is metal-exporting, so it must be a leftover from a batch manufactured for Spain 🙂
