After decades of travel at the speed of light, we finally arrived at the Land of Cleves on the distant world with the strange name of “Oh, hi!  Oh…”.  The spaceport looked a lot like the one in The Town of Bost, but much, much smaller.  This was obviously a very remote planet and not much visited.

  1. Sounds just like all the trips I took with my broth and sister and parent. How awful those trips were! It hurts to even remember them.
