Cuentos Chinos

In Spanish, "cuentos chinos" literally means "Chinese stories." This phrase is used to refer to very elaborate misrepresentations of the truth, and it may have its origins in the Spaniards' disbelief of Marco Polo's travel stories. This centuries-old phrase perfectly suits the description of all Chinese companies whose ongoing "cuentos chinos" have come to an end after a very long journey.
