i want to be humble

i took this at the mirador de yanahuara in arequipa, peru. now in spanish mirador translates as view point, and as the sun was setting i thought it would be worth walking up to it to enjoy the view. i suppose i should have guessed when the walk wasn't too steep, but i found the view was fairly disappointing. the sun was directly behind me and a big volcano called el misti wasn't in view, so all that was left was a fairly uninspiring vista of a few rooftops. maybe i've been spoiled recently, and was expecting too much, as there were enough other people there enjoying themselves. the title of the photo comes from the belisario calle quote inscribed above the archway which reads: yo quiero ser humilde como tu pueblo mio y volver cansado del trabajo cuando se hunde la luz. using my rudimentary spanish i make out it says i want to be humble like you my town and return tired from work when the light's gone down - hey i've managed to make it rhyme in english, that probably means i've translated it wrong.
