Greetings, tribe. My sight-seeing journey has been pleasant thus far, if a bit bewildering. Here are a few pictures of me visiting the more popular galactic relics onsite:
As you can see I picked up a functioning BB unit along the way, and while I expect it will fetch a hefty bounty, it's brought me no end of trouble with this planet's natives.
First one of the roving Troopers tried to steal it:
Then a Jedi tried one of her mind tricks to get me to trade it for a measly lightsaber:
Don't worry, I held firm, brothers and sisters. NO DEAL.
I think this second BB unit even tried to attack me!
Or it could have been expressing affection. Hard to say.
I figured a few body guards might come in handy:
But these two had the most shocking manners. Really. Not at all appropriate for a shaman of my standing.
I eventually made it to our cousins' encampment:
Where they had the most wonderful workshop inside:
After a few "utini"s, though, it was time to move on.
I will say the smaller inhabitants of this planet are most curious creatures:
You'd think they'd never seen a Jawa before!
This one introduced itself as "Matt," and wanted me to explain what a calcinator was:
I did my best, tribe, but the creature's Jawaese was abysmal. I doubt much got through.
Fortunately the little ones are peaceful enough, and several even made inquiries into the droid I carried:
Still no deal; they have very few credits here.
Then one of the natives actually demanded I release the droid, if you can believe it:
I tried to explain that business is business, but again, the language barrier got in the way.
Still, I must say, these little ones can be most affectionate.
... which isn't wholly unpleasant.
After a while I even grew to appreciate having beings my own height around again:
And at least most of them smell better than ewoks.
Hands off the merchandise, kid.
All in all, tribe, I have to say this has been a most successful sojourn.
And I think I may just stay on this planet a while longer.
'Til then, signing off,
Note From Jen: Have you collapsed from the cute yet? Because I have! Stay tuned for more from Star Wars Celebration; I've only got about 1200 photos to sort through first...
Second Note From Jen: John would like it pointed out that this is my first post ever using only his photos. Although I edited them. But still. So... THANKS, SWEETIE!
