Sorry, perhaps I missed this.  If you say the URI identifies your 
impression of that city.  What you gets back from HTTP dereference is 
the *impression* of your impression of the city.  You can never gets 
back what a URI denotes by a communication protocol, like HTTP.  You 
always get back a message about it, but not it.
