I don't know how will be Qatar ready to hold the Asian Games when the facilities are far from being completed. Do you really think these Bavaria Executive Complex Hotel will be ready for the games? I mean READY.

I have been perplexed in the last couple of years and always wander what in the hell were they thinking, when anouncing their will to build 40 storey towers and other facilities relaterd to the games, less the two years before the games were supposed to be held.

Good Luck Qatar, you really need it.

That is what I was thinking. I passed by the complex yesterday night and they seemed like furnishing it. I hope that luck is on our side!
