Straight on for a hundred yards and turn left...

Was the instruction I gave to a young chap at about 3am the other night. It was his first trip to Strasbourg and he couldn't find his hotel. Sensible fellow though, he had brought with him a street map.

Which does not mean he could use it.

20 minutes later he phoned to say he was lost, and could I help him. I pointed out that he was the fellow with the map and I was sure he would be alright.

I later discovered that he had taken the phone a friend option. That is he phoned a friend in the UK, woke them, begged them to go online and direct him using google maps.

The youth of today.
