Greetings from planet Earth to our distant neighbors out there.
Before you make plans to invade - I mean to visit us, may I suggest you browse through HubPages and read many excellent articles on planet Earth preservation, science, travel and tourism, history and a plethora of articles on just about any topic you can think of.
To get to know what we are like, drop by the forums to read our opinions and thoughts on many things. You will find that many of us are intelligent, creative, artistic knowledgeable on many things, humorous and sometimes downright 'off the wall', which means 'baffling' - you know: comments that make you shake your head and roll your eyes (or eye) up.
I believe by visiting HubPages you will be well-prepared for what awaits you here on Earth.
Best wishes to all and don't forget to pack your cameras and own drinking water.
