On our journey we encountered a city in which a rare virus, temporius reversus, had infected the inhabitants, causing them to misread the direction of time. They greeted us by saying goodbye. We sure hope you liked our sights, they said, just before they took us on a tour of the city. They seemed especially proud of their many towers, which we found both beautiful and amazing. We only hope, they said, that the reality will be half as marvelous as the models. When we left we thanked them for their hospitality. Hello, they answered, welcome to our fair city.
