Quito Finito? No, Quito Fino!

My wife sent me a few photos from Quito, Ecuador that seemed randomly arranged, so I've posted them below in an order of my own, beginning with this street scene:

Not a typical street scene, but enchanting in its own way. Next, a mysterious, rounded pyramid - if that's geometrically permissible, labeled so:

Followed by a statue standing guard:

And another statue, a bit corny, but more inviting:

And a lovely, if imminently foggy, valley - the penultimate photo . . . so far:

Now fireworks, the ultimate photo - until the next batch arrives!

Wish I were there . . .

I think it would be wonderful if picture #4 was actually you in disguise. Imagine how happy Mrs. Comrade Hodges would be if you took off the mask and the "corny" statue was actually you: "Surprise!"

I think she'd be more than surprised when I'd cry out, "Bow down before the negation of the negation!"

Sounds like you got a scene there for your next novella. Maybe even the climax?

Is negation of negation affirmation in this nation?

Nice photos! Color me envious.

Yeah, it does sound like that sort of scene.
