tera'Daq lengwIj wa'DIch

This is my first long post (from sometime last year). I think the
grammarians (past and present) have helped me get it into a near-final
state.  So, here it is, along with the translation (in case I mistranslated
something really badly).

"My first voyage to Earth" part I
story composed by Tuv'el, son of Claw

Earth is found in the alpha quadrant.  It is the homeworld of Humans.  Earth
is the strangest world in this galaxy.  Earth is smaller than Kronos, so
Earth's gravity seemed weak to me.  When I arrived in the city of "San
Francisco" my translator stopped working again.  Luckily, I studied
<English> while I was young.  I was as hungry as gagh, so I looked for a
restaurant that served Earth cuisine.  I noticed an "Italian" restaurant and
I went in.  I said to the waiter, "Bring some pungent food for me."  The
so-called food he brought was very bland.  I demanded to meet the head cook
and I said, "I cannot eat this food.  Bring me sharp food, now!"  Because he
misunderstood me, he brought me pipius claws.  When I arrived at the hotel,
I tried to order gagh, but I received only dead friggin' gagh!  If I visit
Earth again, I will certainly bring a lot of Klingon food to go.

"My first voyage to Earth" part II

My bed was too soft so I slept on the floor.  As soon as I woke up, I went
to the city of "San Diego" to see the zoo.  I saw most of the animals of
Earth.  I saw an animal that looked like a large sark but it's neck was very
long.  I said, "That animal seems to resemble a sark."  A little Terran girl
heard me, and replied, "No, that's a giraffe.  Sarks live in the ocean."  I
didn't understand her before I entered the fish area.  I saw a "shark."
This Earth animal looked like a norg.  So, the Terran girl was confused.
The zoo contained a section for the animals of Kronos.  While I was there, I
absolutely enjoyed the stronger gravity.  This section undoubtedly resembled
the surface of Kronos, but there was one serious error.  There was a
disgusting tribble hiding in a tree!  I tried to kill it but was prevented
by a force field.  I explained clearly to the zoo's commander.  Tribbles do
not live on Kronos.  All Klingon's utterly detest tribbles.  The Klingon
homeworld is not the homeworld of tribbles.  I was surprised because he
became very angry.  I didn't know Humans could be so passionate.  Do they
not resemble Vulcans?

I found a "Thai" restaurant that night.  "Thai" food is not too bad.

"My first voyage to Earth" part III

Today I visited the city of Paris.  I arrived at night.  I wanted to listen
to a Human opera.  Impure Human opera is obviously not Klingon Grand Opera!
I dislike their music.  I visited the "Eiffel" and the "Louvre."  The
"Eiffel" building is very tall.  The "Louvre" building contains many statues
and displays.  I saw a Bat'telh display and a statue that looked like "blood
oath circles."  I really liked the statues, but the displays were very
strange.  When I visited the ancient temple of an Earth religeon, I saw a
"gargoyle" statue.  A "gargoyle" resembles the Fek'lhr.  The stained-glass
windows were also interesting.

The city of "London" was next.  A tunnel under the ocean connects the
mainland to the island of "Britain."  Shakespeare was born hereabouts.
Shakespeare translated many Klingon stories, proverbs, and songs for the
Federation.  Humans are absolutely convinced Shakespeare wrote those
stories, proverbs, and songs.  I certainly ridicule such a foolish idea!  I
visited a building of ancient Earth weaponry in "London."  I saw axes,
maces, double-headed axes, and axes with spikes on their ends.  I saw
primitive guns and a statue of a swordfighter.  I believe the history of
Human warfare is quite interesting.  The Humans' ancstors were apparently
violent.  Now Humans have obviously become non-violent.  I admire their
ancestors.  Conflict strengthens the blood while peace weakens the spirit.

"My first voyage to Earth" part IV

I visited the "Smithsonian" institute today.

Humans are weak as water, but clever as an eyebrow.

While I visited the History Building, I enjoyed all the displays.  I studied
the bones of ancient extinct animals.  The Space Sciences Building was very
interesting.  That building contained the most primitive devices and the
latest innovations.  I saw a primitive flying vessel.  I saw the first
satellite to orbit the Earth.  I also saw the "Phoenix."  That ship was the
first Earth vessel to use the warp drive.  I learned the story of the myth
of the "phoenix." The "phoenix" is a firebird.  Every five hundred years,
the firebird gets ready to die, but is reborn.

I found a Klingon restaurant that served good food in the city of "Chicago."
I most certainly did not nibble my food.

I enjoyed visiting Earth.  Perhaps you should visit it.
