3. BEA : What’s your favourite planet?

You won’t be surprised to learn that I agree with Tony: my favourite planet is my home planet, Sol 3 (Earth).  My second-favourite planet is Dancer 61.  The natives are bright reddish brown, so they notice my pale skin, but they always smile, and sometimes give me a friendly wave.  I like staying with my friend Hais and her family in their cottage on Dancer 61.  Lying, warm and comfortable in my sleeping bag in their loft, with the family’s minds drowsing to sleep around me, I feel safe.  It’s easy to forget I’m on an alien planet, countless light years from home.  I think Tony has the right idea, in his answer above.  It’s not the planet that you like; it’s the people on it.
