Hola Andrés. Supe que ayer se pudo realizar la ceremonia, que
bien! Y finalmente los TCRs enviaron sus llaves a representantes
locales en Los Angeles? Y monitorearon todo en remoto?

Además entiendo que firmaron varios meses en adelantado, para
saltarse la siguiente ceremonia, no?

Gracias y felicitaciones por haberlo logrado!
