I am ready!

I wonder what is the latest on the "Grand Opening" ceremonies!?

Ceremonias Grandioso?

Any one know? I am wearing my tux and ready to attend!

Great Opening is "Gran Apertura" in Spanish. No fresh news about it yet

Good pics. I wonder why is taking them so much time for finishing the cladding of Caja Madrid Tower (most of all, the upper arch).

A few more. These towers are really impressive, even more so because they have no real competitions.

Champagna

I think we all love these towers so much we should all meet there with a bottle of champaign in hand ready to make a toast! Ja ja!

I am trying get others excited about these towers over here in the US. We are so envious. Viva Espana!

Cordiales saludos! Siate felici!
