    Default Dhow - Doha, Qatar

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'

    We are not now that strength which in old days

    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;

    One equal temper of heroic hearts,

    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. -Tennyson, ​Ulysses

    Nice.

    You?
