> For your special day, you're going to Sergyar. As your ship approaches the planet, you see it cupped in space, glittering like an Emperor's earring. A circular approach allows you to savor sunrise over most of the planet.
> After expedited landing formalities, you enjoy a quiet but filling breakfast in the Ekaterin-designed garden at the viceregal palace. It's small and lovely; you enjoy a leisurely stroll, savoring the cool morning air.
> Circuitous routes are a theme for you today, as your next adventure continues with a fly-over of mountain chain of volcanoes, including Mount Rosemont. From the sun glinting off the snowy top, to the subtle reds of the surrounding semi-desert, these are sights you don't see every day.
> After all the fiery dryness, though, you're definitely ready for a change. Lunch at Sgt. Penney's place [Ma Penney's no Ma Kosti, but the food and company are both excellent] and an afternoon on Lake Serena are just the things for you. Subsequently, you savor sunset over the lake and the semi-silent susurration of the water.
> Flying back to the city, you see stars. A superlative dinner at local restaurant, featuring a discreet band playing everything from jazz to techno to fusion, with unexpected harpsichord now & then, followed by fireworks over Kareenburg [definitely including a no-radial forecast] complete your day.
> I hope it's happy and fun.
