Strange mixture in Cuba: H2O and UFOs

And now a question of global significance: Why the heck are Cuban water tanks - like the one above in Santiago de Cuba - shaped like UFOs?

Is this a Cuban invention? I found a few photos of Russian water tanks, below, and they look nothing like Cuban tanks. So what gives? Where did these strange saucer-shaped tanks come from?

That does look strange...I wonder who ever designed the tower had a fascination with UFOs so they decided to create the water towers after UFOs.

Maybe someone in Cuba will solve the mystery for us...

There's a few like this in Canada... let me try to find some pictures. I've always wondered about them!

Canada: Proud exporters of UF0 shaped water towers since 1964.

there's gotta be a conspiracy here somewhere...
