“The Swedish ship Gotheborg has been built according to traditional methods and with the same raw materials that were used in the 18th century. 1,000 oak logs and 50 kilometres of pine have been turned into a 58.5 metre long and 11 metre wide East Indiaman ship. The nails, blocks, sails, cordage and ropes have all been made by hand. It took 100,000 man hours just to build the rig. No drawings from the past were found, so the main keys to success had to be innovation, skill and persistent research. Modern equipment for safety, navigation, cooking, heating and hygiene has been carefully disguised onboard to preserve the traditional feel.”

    In not too many years, my father would become known as the best pharmacologist under
    30 and would travel to Seattle to pick up an award; he would publish as few others in his field did.
    Only one admitted to having a penchant for pointy heels, but clumpy ones were a definite
    no-no all-round. Now there are a couple of websites that really
    help out a lot, offering mens and womens Western wear that’s really affordable, and good quality too.
