I know I shouldn't find this (http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/06/09/060609174812.x6bx2vfk.html) funny but I just can't help myself. Especially the part about the man not even knowing he was lost.

Three elderly Americans lost for three days in Miami

Three elderly people spending three days driving lost around Miami until a police officer came to their rescue.

"The two women were taking turns driving, and they've been driving around non-stop trying to find the hotel," said Mary Walters of the Miami-Dade police department.

"The gentleman does have alzheimer, so he didn't even know he was lost," she said.

The trio from Naples, New York state, all in their early 70s, were in Miami to visit a sick friend, said Walters.

"They were found in the car, just sitting there, in the parking lot of the gas station," said Walters.

The three visited their friend on Tuesday, but got lost on their way back to their hotel, about 13 kilometers (eight miles) away.

They managed to tell a relative about their plight Wednesday before their cell phone battery apparently went dead. Police across southern Florida were told to look out for them

Walters said all three were doing well. "They're awaiting family members to take them back to New York," she said.

You shouldn't go to those places if you can't speak the language.
