The Four Towers from Chamartin Station. The British Embassy is situated at the top of the right hand of the four towers.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The left-hand tower, a Norman Foster creation, is the tallest building in Spain. Right hand tower - Torre Espacio, home of the British Embassy.

In taking this shot, I was in danger of making myself very late for a class I was due to give at the top of the tower you see here 2nd from the left (PwC). I ran, diced with death crossing the Paseo de la Castellana against the traffic, and was very worried when I realised that I was 5 minutes late as I approached reception at the foot of the tower, ... only to be informed that my student had cancelled that day's class due to a sudden important meeting!

... So no class but a passable shot!

Ha Ha Ha!! Hala Madrid, indeed!

Thank you for L+F. Please, you have a different name than xacobeo4. I have seen you use it but I have forgotten what it is. Please remind me.!!

Otherwise it will have to be 'Thank you, Xacobeo4'

... which doesn't seem quite right!!
