Of course odds of success go up with research, careful planning, reputable factories, compatible features, a history of performance…
…and a sense of humor helps too.
Our twenty-seven year celebration began with a last party at Curtis and Mary's…a good-bye to coworkers who head back to the states soon - or move into different Doha digs.
Curtis and Mary's beautiful, ambitious, 23 year old son pointed to his parents and said, "aren't they GREAT?" We think so too. :)
Esther sings "The Doha Song" ("I can see clearly now, the sand is gone...")
Tracy and Mike insist on taking their kids back to Missouri, USA with them. How selfish. :)
Topped off with alone time at Doha's Al Mourjan Restaurant ("A Touch of Art, A Taste of Perfection; One of the World's Best Restaurants!") overlooking West Bay waters.
We toured the pyramid shaped Sheraton hotel - Doha's first hotel - and later, watched "The King's Speech" on DVD.

Because…when you get it right? It's the best thing ever.
